Speaking to Rajeev Dubey, Editor, Business Today, Debroy also said big bang announcements in the upcoming Union Budget 2020 may not become a reality. He said it is "unrealistic" to expect any big bang announcements in the upcoming budget as the Centre has exhausted its fiscal space. Watch the full interview for more.
