Even as the government said "bitter medicine" is needed for reviving the economy, the BJP has said the budget would be "sweet".

"A sweet budget is being prepared in the finance ministry," Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson Syed Shahnawaz Hussain said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi earlier said that "bitter medicine" might be needed to rescue the economy and restore its fiscal health even if the measures dent his popularity and hurt the BJP in the short run.

The newly-installed National Democratic Alliance government will present its first budget July 10.
