Funniest Twitter Reactions On Budget 2017

The Budget 2017 was quite an event.
While the unfortunate demise of veteran parliamentarian E Ahamed was deeply saddening, the Budget was announced as per its scheduled time despite protests from the opposition. Total expenditure of this year’s budget is 21 lakh 47 thousand crore rupees. Rs 2.44 was trending as ‘The Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana’ lending target has been doubled at Rs 2.44 lakh crore for 2017.
