Election year budget sets at Tk2.22tn

Update : 18 Apr 2013, 01:01 PM


The announcements regarding the budget have me a bit perplexed. I understand that it is an election year and that the government must be seen doing good, but this is so unrealistic. It also seems foolhardy that they have allocated so much for the Padma bridge project, but are still unsure as to whether or not they will receive funding from the Islamic Development Bank for it. Without the banks funding, they cannot build the bridge, it seems silly for them to make these pre-emptive promises.
