Honourable finance minister AMA Muhith has proposed the national budget for the 2017-18 FY in the parliament on June 01, 2017. The most experienced finance minister of Bangladesh has broken his own record of placing maximum budget in the parliament. The total size of the proposed budget is taka 4.26 trillion along with an annual development plan of about taka 1.55 trillion. The sizes of the total outlay and ADP are both the ever highest in Bangladesh budgets. Critics called it an election budget to manage everybody. Few criticisms came with crueler words like to cut mass peoples pocket and collect election expenditure of the party. In spite of all the political criticisms, we welcome this biggest budget in the national history.
