Rajasthan budget 2017-18 was more about the maintaining harmony and less about hovering over any specific sector. Surprisingly, even after completing 3 years, when they have almost completed all their said promises, Rajasthan BJP did not keep this budget deprived of any new schemes. Better health facilities for women, farmers’ soil health cards and WiFi facilities, this scheme has it all. On Wednesday, CM Raje announced the Rajasthan budget and it was hopeful even for pessimists.
The bigger news, apart from this is, 190 cities of Rajasthan will be equipped with wi-fi facilities. This list also includes villages with the population of more than 5000. These villages will be converted into “smart villages”, as mentioned by the state government in budget statement.
