Visakhapatnam, Feb 16 (UNI) TDP Parliamentary Party Leader K Yerran Naidu today dubbed 'magic of numbers' the Andhra Pradesh Budget 2008-09 presented by Finance Minister K Rosaiah in the Assembly.
Addressing a press conference here, he said ''the budget is nothing great but to impress the public to garner votes in the forthcoming elections.'' He alleged that the Congress, which promised to waive debts in cooperative sector, had failed to do so once it assumed power.
Mr Naidu demanded that Mr Rosaiah should introduce a white paper on actual budgetary allocations made by him in each budget.
He accused the Finance Minister of not announcing any initiatives under market intervention scheme.
''On the whole, the budget is not poor man or farmer friendly,'' he remarked.
