Congress to challenge U’khand Budget ordinance

NEW DELHI (TIP): The Congress on March 31 said it would move court if the Modi government issues an ordinance authorising expenditure from April 1 in Uttarakhand that has been placed under the President’s Rule.

Former law minister Kapil Sibal contested Centre’s claims that the Uttarakhand Assembly had failed to pass the state budget on March 18.

“I would like to ask Prime Minister Narendra Modi on what basis have you declared that the Budget has not been passed in the Assembly,” Sibal said referring to the Union Cabinet recommendation to the President to promulgate the Uttarakhand Appropriation ordinance.

He said promulgation of an ordinance to authorise expenditure would be“unprecedented and unconstitutional”.

The senior Congress leader contended that the Uttarakhand speaker had declared that the Appropriation Bill was passed by a voice vote and that there was no petition in the court contesting it.
