Rahul Gandhi''s tweet read, "Most extensive budget consultation ever, is reserved for crony capitalist friends & the super rich. He has no interest in the views or voices of our farmers, students, youth, women, govt & PSU employees, small businessmen or middle class tax payers."

On Thursday, the Prime Minister had held a two-hour meeting with over 30 leading economists and business leaders, to take inputs on reviving the floundering economy.
