Finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Friday put a defence of Budget relying on expenditure to boost growth, saying the Budget brings stability for an economy reeling under the pandemic and will create jobs through public spending.
Rejecting criticism of high prices in the country, she said the inflation at just over 6% when pandemic shaved off Rs.9.57 lakh crore from the economy is less than that during past crises like the 2008-09 global financial meltdown when the economic impact was much less.
