Attempts made to mislead people on Union Budget: Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said attempts were made to mislead people on the Union Budget, however, even critics now accept that it is the best budget under the prevailing global economic scenario.

Speaking at the BJP parliamentary party meeting here, Modi hailed the Bodo accord and the agreement to settle the members of Bru-Reang tribe in Tripura, terming them "historic" successes of his government in this decade. It will usher in an era of peace in the North East which has suffered decades of bloodshed and violence, he said.
