Akhilesh Yadav launches ‘Know Your Budget’ initiative for UP residents
Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav has come up with a new social media initiative to ensure that information on his farmer- and student-focused budget unveiled earlier this month reaches the last mile, with an eye on Assembly elections next year.
Started on 13 February, a day after the budget was rolled out, ‘Know Your Budget’ has been launched on Yadav’s official twitter handle, @CMOfficeUP. It follows a multiple choice question format where budget-related questions are asked and people have to answer by way of voting. The correct answer is revealed the next day.
