The Left Front government in Tripura termed the union budget presented on Monday as a gimmick to get electoral benefit. State's finance minister and senior CPI(M) leader Badal Choudhury said political intentions of the UPA government clearly reflected in the budget.

"The UPA government has tried to woo corporate sector. Attempts have been made to revert corporate support from Narendra Modi to its favour", Mr Choudhury told newsmen.

He said the electoral competition between BJP and Congress was visible in the budget. Aspirations of ordinary and backward people merely find any place, he opined.

State's main opposition Congress hailed the budget. "The UPA has presented a dynamic and pro-people budget which is last of its present term", party's working president Asish Kumar Saha said.
