Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of an event,


Information and Broadcasting Minister M Venkaiah Naidu hoped that all parties understand the importance of the Budget session and prepare themselves to participate in a more meaningful and constructive manner.

He said government is ready to discuss each and every issue including demonetisation.

“This budget is a new budget because general budget and railway budget have been combined together. The members will have an opportunity to discuss policies of the government.

“Secondly, we will have ample opportunity to scrutinise the budget proposals in depth because we have a committee system and thirdly, we can have a general discussion on various issues in the session,” Naidu said.

The minister said government has nothing to hide or worry, adding that, “we have taken many far-reaching reforms in various walks of life and governance and we are happy of discuss about the same including the recent demonetisation.

“We can also discuss other related issues that are currently before the country. I hope we will have a meaningful session and members of all parties will use this occasion to have a more constructive debate,” the minister added.
