New Delhi, Feb 1 (IBNS) : Union Minister Arun Jaitley on Friday described the interim budget present by Finance Minister Piyush Goyal as "pro-growth, pro-farmer and pro-poor."

"The Budget is unquestionably Pro-Growth, Fiscally prudent, Pro-Farmer, Pro-Poor and strengthens the purchasing power of the Indian Middle Class," he said in a series of tweets.

"My compliments to Shri Piyush Goyal for delivering an excellent Budget. The Budget furthers the agenda of the Government headed by Prime Minister Shri @narendramodi ji to comprehensively address the challenges of the economy," he said in another tweet.

"The Interim Budget presented by Shri Piyush Goyal today marks a high point in the policy directions that the Government headed by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has given to this nation. @narendramodi @PiyushGoyal
"The Budget expands spending while pragmatically sticking to fiscal prudence," Jaitley observed.

He claimed that between 2014-19, every Budget has given significant relief to the middle class.

"Interim Budgets are also an opportunity for the Government of the day to introspect their performance of the last five years and place its facts before the people."
