RJD leader J P Yadav said, "People had high expectations from the railway budget, but it did not turn out good. The people have expectations from this (general) budget also."
He further stated, "It (the budget) should be for the youth, women and lower middle classes of society."
He also rejected the NDA Government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's oft repeated claim and idea of "Ache Din Aane Wale Hain".
"There is no 'acche din'," he said.
