Yediyurappa presents his third budget today. He mentions that “Against the budgeted estimates, we are expecting to spend at least 94% of the total expenditure. This is the result of strict fiscal discipline in the initial months of the Financial Year and the recovery of the state’s economy in the last quarter. From such points of financial constraints, this is a balanced budget bringing relief in a difficult situation.”
He adds ” Rs 5,372 crore for tackling the pandemic and 63.59 lakh beneficiaries of different sectors have been given assistance. About 1.91 crore people have undergone RT-PCR tests since the end of February. Free treatment to 9.53 Lakhs patients. 90 lakh food packets at construction sites to laborers.
