New Delhi, Feb 1: Samajwadi Party leader and wife of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, Dimple Yadav on Wednesday dubbed the Union Budget as "vision and directionless" and said that it neglected the farmers and the women. "I am not satisfied with this budget. It is directionless and lacks vision to transform the country," Yadav, the Lok Sabha member from Kannauj, told outside Parliament.
Dimple, daughter-in-law of Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav, said: "This government has neglected the farmers, youths and especially the women of the country. There is nothing in the budget for them."
