New Delhi, July 10: Finance Minister Arun Jaitley tabled the first Union Budget 2014 of Narendra Modi government. While many called it an anti-poor budget, others hailed the budget calling it a growth-oriented budget. Meanwhile, Congress, one of the main opposition parties, made a goof up while commenting on the budget presented on Thursday, July 10.

While Congress President Sonia Gandhi claimed that Modi government copied UPA government's budget, former Railway Minister Mallikarjun Kharge and Congress leader Rajeev Shukla claimed it was nothing but an anti-poor and pro-rich budget. Following the reactions from the party, many raised questions whether Congress's budget too was pro-rich and anti-poor?

However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other NDA leaders, contradicting to other opposition leaders' reactions, hailed the budget. Here take a look at who said what:

Narendra Modi: We are going in the right direction to overcome challenges faced in last decade.

Sonia Gandhi: There is nothing new, they have merely continued our schemes.

Raghuram Rajan (RBI Chief): Too early to declare victory on bad loans.

Arvind Kejriwal: If you closed your eyes and heard Arun Jaitley properly, you would have thought it was Chidambaram speaking.

Mamata Banerjee: The budget is visionless, missionless and actionless from the angle of the common people.

Nitish Kumar: Budget of Modi govt is "disappointing" as there was nothing for backward states.

Lalu Prasad Yadav: All sections of society have been cheated. Where is the BJP's slogan of 'Swadeshi' now?, wherever you see, it's just FDI & PPP.

Mayawati: I dont think inflation will come down with this.

Praful Patel: We will have to give time to see how it works out, Abi to na khushi hai na gham.

Ghulam Nabi Azad: Nothing new in Budget 2014 , just repackaging and renaming of old UPA.

Mulayam Singh Yadav: This Budget 2014 is only for the rich, not for the poor or the unemployed.

Manu Singhvi: Nation expected much more. All these campaign promises and then "khoda pahaad nikala chuha"?

Manish Tewari: High on rhetoric, short on delivery. No vision and no roadmap.
