INDIA-POLITICS-ECONOMY-BUDGET

An Indian Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) vendor carries gas cylinders on a cycle rickshaw outside a depot in New Delhi on February 29, 2016. In his budget statement India's Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that the Government has decided to embark on a massive mission to provide LPG connection in the name of women members of poor households. India pledged to spend USD 5.2 billion dollars to double the income of struggling farmers and also boost a rural employment scheme as it unveiled its annual budget under pressure to balance much-needed spending with fiscal prudence. India is now the world's fastest-growing major economy, but years of drought and a failure to create jobs for a burgeoning young population has left millions of rural Indians struggling and led to deadly protests in recent weeks.
