New Delhi, Feb 1 : Ahead of the presentation of the interim Budget for 2019-20, the Congress on Friday alleged that the government had ‘leaked’ its contents.
In a tweet, just before the presentation of the Budget by Finance Minister Piyush Goyal in the Lok Sabha, senior Congress leader Manish Tewari alleged that a few points relating to the Union budget were leaked to the media personnel.
Posting a number of screenshots , Mr Tewari suggested that should the pointers mentioned in the images were to be part of the Budget, it can then be amounted to a 'budget leak'.
"These pointers are being Circulated to Media people by Govt Sources . If all this or substantive amount of these proposals find reflection in the budget would it not tantamount to a BUDGET LEAK ?," he tweeted.
The Opposition parties including the Congress had claimed that the government was trying to present a full fledged Budget instead of an interim budget, which is the usual case in the election year. (UNI)
