Una, Mar 16 (UNI) Himachal Pradesh Education Minister and senior BJP leader ID Dhiman today hailed the state budget for the year 2008-09 as a balanced one and thanked Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal for continuing with subsidized ration to the public.

"Previous Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh had misled the people of the state on the issues of providing cheap rations through the Public Distribution System without any budgetary provisions," he told mediapersons here.

Mr Dhiman said not only did Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal provide a sum of Rs 70 crore for the current financial year, he also made a budgetary provision of Rs 90 crore for the next financial year.
