It’s that time of the year when the government announces the Union Budget and everyone who is anyone turns into a loud-mouthed economist.
While most people don’t seem to be very impressed with the budget, others couldn’t care less. Both of these parties, however, posted their opinions and memes on Twitter and flooded our newsfeeds with hilarious content on #Budget2018.
While you wait for someone to come and explain all the big terms and numbers, here are the best memes and tweets to give you a tiny gist of everything that’s happening:
People are taking a jibe at the middle class, which has been the staunchest supporter of the govt, being snubbed.
Modi: Salaried logon ke baare mein bhi soch liya kar kabhi…
Jaitley: Woh kya hota hai ?? #Budget2018 pic.twitter.com/YwhHkylXTD

Middle class : Yaar Jaitley ne maar li. Kya bakwas Budget hai hamare liye.
Rahul Gandhi : We stand with Indian middle class. Modi has cheated your faith and dreams. Congress party will…
Middle class : Chup be! Modi.. Modi.. Modi.. Modi..#Budget2018

Middle Class will now have to pay:
Goods and Service Tax.
Long Term Capital Gain Tax.
Increased Cess on Income Tax.
This will make them fall in BPL category and hence will be able to avail all Govt Schemes.
Masterstroke by Modi ji.#Budget2018

Lower class ko milti hain subsidy,
Upper class ko milti hain rebates.
Salary walo tum dekho TV kyonki
Middle class ko milti hain debates.#Budget2018#JaitleyPakodaChor
