In what is being considered very strange, Dhananjay Munde – the leader of the Opposition in the Maharashtra Legislative Council – claimed that that details of the state budget were leaked on social media before it was presented in the assembly.
Munde and some other opposition members raised the issue in the Council and disrupted the budget presentation by Minister of State for Finance Deepak Kesarkar alleging that the state budget were leaked on the Twitter handle of finance minister Sudhir Mungantiwar before it was presented in the assembly.
When Kesarkar tried to present the budget in the Upper House, Munde waved his mobile phone and then read out from it some budget details. Munde said even before Mungantiwar read out the first part of the budget in the Assembly, his twitter account already put out the information.
Following the ruckus over the issue, Assembly was adjourned and resumed after 10 minutes wherein BJP member and state revenue minister Chandrakant Patil said he would move a no-confidence motion against Nimbalkar.
“We have come to the conclusion that the House chairman cannot protect our rights. We will move a no- confidence motion against you,” said Patil.
