Discussions about what people want in the budget must be done just before the budget is making. But people discuss about in when the budget is already prepared and just about to take in parliament for approval and more laughable thing is that people and scholars do discussions after the budget is already passed. Wha! What an idea!

Budget making is a specialized job best done by experts who are aware of its financial implications and based on a policy laid down by ruling government. Budget is not something to be left to the opinion of masses! Masses can elect the right MPs and MLAs capable of right policies!
