When Yashwant Sinha rose from his seat in Parliament House to present the first Union Budget of this century, everybody thought he would bite the bullet. After all, he had promised that it would be a harsh and bold Budget.
But instead of a bang, Budget 2000 has caused a whimper. Corporate chieftains, economist, politicians, and others have been quick to dismiss the finance minister's efforts as run-of-the-mill and lacklustre.
On the other hand, Sinha and his team are miffed that people have failed to read the fine print.
