Describing the general Budget as a 'sanjeevani' (new life) to the "moribund economy", Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said it converts hopes and aspirations of the people into trust and is in line with his government's endeavour to bring India out of crisis.

"This Budget is a new ray of hope for the poor and downtrodden sections of society," he said commenting on the maiden budget of his government presented in Parliament today.

The Prime Minister stated that despite the "testing times", his government is committed to extend every possible help to the poor, the neo-middle class and the middle class, inspired by the mantra of 'Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas'.

He said the Budget is in line with making India skilled and digital, guided by the usage of the latest technology.

Congratulating Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, he said, "The Budget will give an impetus to Jan Bhagidari (people's participation) and Jan Shakti (people's power)."

Modi said development should be all-encompassing ("samaveshak, sarvadeshak, sarvasparshi") and should also reach those parts of the country which have so far remained underdeveloped.
