Union Budget 2017 to be presneted as scheduled

After confusion in the morning over possible postponement of the budget following the death of former Union minister and Indian Union Muslim League leader E Ahamed, the government is now ready to present the budget as planned.

The president has given its nod to the government to present the union budget. Opposition Congress was insisting on the postpoement of the budget, according to reports.

E Ahamed passed away early today after he suffered a cardiac arrest, a senior doctor has confirmed. This has led to the question of a delay in the presentation of Union Budget 2017.

According to precedence, whenever a sitting MP of the parliament dies the house is adjourned for a day. Despite various discussions between the ruling party and the opposition, the death of E Ahamed has cast a shadow on the Union Budget 2017.
