AL allies see challenge in execution

A day after finance minister AMA Muhith tabled the 2018-19 annual budget in Parliament, the alliance partners of the ruling Awami League (AL) emphasised the need for its implementation. The alliance leaders said the current government has been giving big budgets one after the other, but the emphasis should be on proper execution in order to fulfil the people’s expectations. At the same time, however, they termed yesterday’s proposed budget as pro-people.

On Thursday, Muhith had tabled a Tk. 464,573 crore budget for the 2018-19 financial year, an increase of 16 per cent from last year, with evident measures to woo political constituencies ahead of the next general election. Reacting to the budget, Workers’ Party president Rashed Khan Menon said it was pro-people and

development-oriented. “But if the budget is not executed properly and if the existing income disparity is not curbed, people would not benefit from it,” he added.

Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal’s factional chief Sharif Nurul Ambia said the budget was fine, but the government would have to take proper measures to implement it. “Implementation of the budget is a major challenge for the government. Going by past experience, budget execution has not been good so far,” he added.

Dilip Barua, general secretary of Bangladesher Samyabadi Dal, said the proposed budget was pro-people, but it had some limitations as well. He, however, did not clarify on the limitations.

“Though it is a big budget, it is very much implementable because Prime Minister Shiekh Hasina is an astute leader,” he added.

Jatiya Party, the key ally of AL, termed the budget as traditional. “There is nothing new in the budget. This is traditional and pro-election budget,” said JP lawmaker Raushan Ershad.
