Mussadiq, a software engineering student, feels that the Budget process is overblown by the media.

He says, "The government says they will help the 'aam aadmi' (common man), but in the end they only help the wealthy and the salaried class.  See the new Bandra-Worli Sea Link, see how expensive it is. No common man can utilise it. When will they create infrastructure for the common man?"

He explains that unemployment is India's number one problem, and that this Budget doesn't do enough to address it.
