Manish Sisodia, tweeted," Disappointing #Budget2018. Not a single extra rupee increased in Delhi's share in Central taxes since 2001-02, stays at Rs 325 Cr. No other part of India gets such treatment. BJP govt at Center continues to treat Delhi residents as second-grade citizens."

Highly disappointing #Budget2018!," said Sisodia.

" I had personally requested a special package for 2000 electric buses for Delhi, which could have played a major role in combating air pollution. Unfortunately, BJP govt does not care for Delhi."
