“That’s why I want to request the entire house that this is a supplementary budget of only 1.33 percent. It would be great if everyone passes it without discussion,” he said.
While presenting the supplementary budget, the Finance Minister started telling the achievements of the government, then Leader of Opposition Ram Govind Chaudhary said that “It is also in the manual and it has been a tradition that while presenting the supplementary budget, it is said that it presents the budget.” But you (Finance Minister) did the whole speech and it was also said that this government has set many records.” To this, Khanna said, “It is absolutely right, this (pointing to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath). So he is the Ram of politics and he is sitting here only to defeat the demonic forces. Members of the ruling party supported Khanna by thumping tables and raising slogans.
