President Pranab Mukhejee has given his assent allowing Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to present Union Budget 2017. The Budget will be presented as scheduled as the government has spoken to all parties, as per the sources. Earlier there were reports that Budget may postpone by a day after MP E Ahamed’s demise.

Hours after sitting Lok Sabha MP from Malappuram in Kerala, E Ahamed, died following a heart attack during President Pranab Mukherjee’s address to the joint session of Parliament, sources from the Government said that Union Budget may postpone for a day.

The Union Budget to be presented on Thursday.

As per the tradition, the House adjourns for a day to mourn the death of a sitting MP. But a postponement today could delay the presentation of the Union Budget 2017.

Veteran Kerala MP, E Ahamed, who suffered a heart attack and collapsed in Parliament’s Central Hall on Tuesday, died after undergoing treatment at the city-based Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital.

“Ahamed died despite being tried to revive. He was on life support system since Tuesday evening,” said sources as per a report in Business Standard.

Ahamed was a former Minister in the UPA regime and a longtime IUML MP from Kerala. He was rushed to RML after he fell unconscious in Parliament during President Pranab Mukherjee’s address.

The 78-year-old veteran leader served as Minister of State for External Affairs in the UPA government. Ahmed has been a Lok Sabha member from Malappuram in Kerala since 1991.

Soon after the news of his death spread, many of the leaders including Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, Kerala Congress leader and parliamentarian K.C. Venugopal visited the hospital post-midnight.
