West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was in no dearth of adjectives to describe the Union Budget presented by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today.

According to the Trinamool Congress supremo, the Union budget 2017 was “clueless, useless, baseless, missionless, actionless, heartless”.

In a series of tweets, Banerjee, whose party skipped Parliament boycotting demonetisation, targeted the Narendra Modi-led government and termed the budget as misleading and full of jugglery of numbers and hollow words.

A controversial #Budget2017 which is clueless, useless, baseless, missionless and actionless. Heartless 1/4

No roadmap for the country or the future from a government that has lost all its credibility 2/4

Tax payers still have restrictions on withdrawals. Remove all restrictions immediately. And where are the figures for #DeMonetisation?

Misleading. Full of jugglery of numbers and hollow words which mean nothing 4/4

Earlier, Banerjee said that the budget became more controversial after the death of veteran parliamentarian E Ahamed. 

"Controversial budget became even more controversial. It is very sad to see the way E Ahamed Ji and family were handled," said Mamata Banerjee in a statement. 

"Condolences to the family of E Ahamed ji. He was first elected as an MLA 50 years ago and served the nation and the people of Kerala, " she added.
