Should we expect some populist measures in today’s budget speech by interim finance minister Piyush Goyal? Coming in an election year will this budget be looking to appease voters?

Agrarian distress is sure to be one of the central issues in the general election. So it will not be surprising to see the government trying to please farmers in the budget. Will there be a farm income support scheme as widely anticipated? Will Goyal also tackle the jobs crisis with some big-ticket announcement?
