The budget session of the State Legislative Assembly will be held in two spells on the lines.
In a departure from its tradition but on line with budget session of Parliament. His session will commence on March 11. Budget will be presented in the first spell and hold sittings till end of March says the Finance Minister A Ramanarayana Reddy.
The exercise is both the outwit the T agitators and also the threat of toppling the Kiran Govt by the Jagan brigade in the budget session.
The only time all demands were discussed was during Telugu Desam was in power in mid 1990s. Since 2004 the House has never discussed all the demands and most of them were adopted either by voice vote or were guillotined due to paucity of time.
Credit goes to both NTR and Chandrababu Naidu to respect the democratic traditions and allow full scale debate before any budgetary demand was passed unanimously in the assembly.
The budget will be passed in the second spell beginning on April 20 and continue till third week of May. Once the budget is presented, and the House will go in for recess after a short spell.
For the first time, the government has constituted standing committees with legislators from both Houses to review the3 review the budgetary allocations subject-wise and after incorporating changes, it will be passed around May 15 tentatively, the Minister said.
Ahead of the exercise the Government will take vote on account to meet the statutory funding requirement for government running and programs .Full budget is passed later on.
