The budget sessions of the Delhi Assembly will begin from March 17. The Assembly will present the Annual Budget 2023-24 on March 21. Kailash Gehlot, who is in charge of Delhi Finance Department, will present the budget in the House this time. After AAP came to power in Delhi in 2015, the finance department was handled by the party’s senior leader and former Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia. However, it is known that Sisodia resigned from his ministry after he was arrested in the Delhi liquor scam case. Kejriwal also accepted Sisodia’s resignation. And this is the first time that Manish Sisodia did not present the budget after AAP took the reins of Delhi.
With Sisodia’s resignation, Revenue Minister Kailash Gehlot has been given charge of the Finance Department. As a result, Gehlot held several meetings with the Finance Ministry officials regarding the budget. Even before Sisodia’s arrest, Gehlot was a part of the budget-related meetings. Also, the budget session of the Assembly will begin with the speech of Delhi Lt. Governor VK Saxena.
Sisodia presented the annual budget 2022-23 on March 26 last year. It was called Rosegar’s Budget. Rs. With 75,800 crores, the budget was framed with a five-year plan to create 20 lakh jobs through various programmes. It is known that not only Sisodia but also Satyender Jain, who is in jail in a money laundering case, has resigned from the post of minister.
