BJP leader Subramanian Swamy pointed out loopholes in the Union budget 2019 presented by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Friday, suggesting that the figures in the budget don't add up even as the promises made are too far fetched.

In a series of tweets, Subramanian Swamy, who has not shied away from attacking Sitharaman on previous occasions, has mocked the proclamations in the budget with expressions like "Sweet Dreams" and "Hare Ram".

Hitting out at the claims by the Finance Minister of our economy  "nearing $3 trillion" mark, he said,

 The BJP's promise of doubling farmers income by 2022 is also hinted by Subramanian as a pipe dream. 

In another tweet, he wrote,

Subramanian Swamy's comments come on the back of a research paper published by former chief economic adviser Arvind Subramanian titled ‘India’s GDP Mis-estimation: Likelihood, Magnitude, Mechanisms and Implications’ in which he made claims that there has been an over-estimation by around 2.5% of GDP numbers for the period of 2011-2017.
