New Delhi: Lok Sabha on Monday passed the Uttarakhand Budget for 2016-17 on the first day of third and final week of current session of Parliament. Finance Minister Arun Jaitely moved a motion for suspension of President's Rule in the state to enable discussion on the same day.
Arun Jaitley said if any new govt comes, it will be entitled to call for session and pass it's own budget. "If President rule continues, I've asked for 4 months for Appropriation Bill. Expenditure undertaken has to be sanctioned.....We don't want a Constitutional crisis. Irrespective of what happens tomorrow. We are not making any detailed provisions but just providing for expenditures", Jaitley said.
During the week, Lok Sabha will resume discussion on drought-situation in the country. The Anti-Hijacking Bill, 2016 passed by Rajya Sabha will also be taken up. During the first two weeks of the current session, Lok Sabha has passed six Bills including the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2015, the Railways Appropriation and Finance Bill.
