Budget Special Interviews

'We are with the government on the divestment issue'
If some of the TDP MPs have spoken against it, it has been their personal view,' says Kinjarapu Yerrannaidu, TDP parliamentary party leader.

'Budget not a defining moment in a nation's economic history'
'Budget is a small thing. The growth plans of a country and the policies relating to infrastructure are not expressed therein. We unnecessarily put too much emphasis on itů, says R Seshasayee, Managing Director, Ashok Leyland.

'I don't see any positive steps this time too'
'I have listened to 30 Budgets and in all the Budgets, what they have said was, we are increasing the customs duty of something and reducing the excise duty of something. That is not healthcare of the nation,' says Dr Pratap Reddy, chairman, Apollo Hospitals.

'The finance minister should revive the stock markets'
'Either remove the dividend tax or bring it down to 10 per cent from the current 20 per cent,' says CII president Arun Bharat Ram.
