At the same time, Jaitley’s Budget didn’t force bitter pills into the mouths of taxpayers. Jaitley used the word tax 53 times, whereas Mukherjee used it 91 times. Jaitley mentioned the word cities 17 times, underscoring his Prime Minister’s vision of smart cities, and Mukherjee not once. Contrary to what many expected, there were no big-bang announcements in this Budget. But there were a lot of small initiatives. Consider the phrase set up Jaitley used it 34 times, Mukherjee 9. Government , of course, continues to remain prominent today, as it did five years ago.
