While presenting his 8th Union Budget, the finance minister emphasised on the need for 'inclusive growth'. According to Chidambaram, the budget will focus on higher growth and financial inclusion.
However, Chidambaram seems to have failed to impress many. Tweeple have been seen making fun over the budget while commenting on the micro-blogging site Twitter.
Here are some instances which will show how some made fun out of Union Budget 2013-14:
