New Delhi: When delivering her Budget 2023–24 address in the Lok Sabha today, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman made a very “political” error by substituting the word for “polluting,” which caused laughs among members of the ruling BJP–led NDA.
“Vehicle replacement is an important ongoing policy,” she said, “Replacing the old political… oh, sorry…,” and paused. Along with smiling and giggling.
“I know!,” she said with a smile, corrected herself, and stressed the word “polluting” in place of “poitical” multiple times as she continued on, speaking about replacing old vehicles as part of an environment conservation policy.
“Replacing old polluting vehicles is an important part of greening our economy,” she said.
“In furtherance of Vehicle Scrapping Policy mentioned mentioned in the Budget 2021-22… states will also be supported,” she added.
While presenting the last full budget of the current central government, FM Sitharaman said, “The decision to replace old government vehicles will provide a fillip to the Indian economy. This will translate into growing order books, increased output, and create job opportunities.”
