Opposition questions timing of Budget at all-party meet: Jagmohan Garg

Jagmohan Garg says opposition leaders said that the government was non-committal on the issue of the presentation of the Budget.


Opposition parties put on record their differences with the government on tabling the Union Budget on February 1, not just because of ongoing Assembly polls in 5 states but also because economic data for the third quarter will not be factored into the document.

At an all party meet called by the government, opposition leaders were united in questioning the timing of the Budget, even as Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked for Parliament to rise above party lines and come forward for discussion on various issues. “Parliament is a Mahapanchayat and I would request all parties to allow the House to run,” Mr Jagmohan Garg said, according to Parliamentary affairs minister Ananth Kumar.
