Budget 2019: Govt’s intent to present ‘regular budget’ questionable, says Congress


Budget 2019: To reports claiming the Centre was planing to present a regular budget, the Congress Thursday said it will be against all norms and established Parliamentary practices. Senior Congress leader Anand Sharma said the governments intent in doing so is questionable and termed the move a desperate attempt to make grandiose announcement and hoodwink people in contravention of the Constitution. The BJP governments move to present a regular budget few months before the elections is against all norms, rules and established Parliamentary practices. The term of the government is five years, which ends in May 2019. The government presented five full budgets and can only present a vote on account, he said.Sharma, a former union minister, said for a budget for 12 months, the government must have the same tenure.
