Finance Minister P Chidambaram plans to get more income for the government by taxing the super-rich and the corporate sector even though he left untouched income tax rates and slabs. But with an eye firmly on the Lok Sabha elections which are scheduled for early 2014, Chidambaram also focused on rural India while presenting Union Budget 2013-14 in Parliament on Thursday and hiked outlays for health, water and sanitation, SCs/STs and tribals and rural development.
However, it was business as usual on social media, with #Budget2013, #Chidambaram and #NirbhayaFund trending through the day and users taking potshots at the government. We've compiled a list of hilariously sarcastic tweets. Feel free to add in the comments section.
