New Delhi, March 2: Finance Minister Arun Jaitley presented the first full year Budget of the PM Narendra Modi-led NDA government in Parliament on Saturday.
Jaitley peppered his speech with digs at the previous UPA regime and sprinkled it with interesting phrases taken out from Urdu poetry and religious scriptures.
The 62-year-old spoke for nearly 100 minutes. He started his speech while standing, which is customary. However, after about 22 minutes, he felt uncomfortable and sat, with the permission of Speaker Sumitra Mahajan.
"Kuch to phool khilaye humne, aur kuch phool khilane hai Mushkil yeh hai bag me ab tak, kaante kai purane hai (We have blossomed some flowers and have to grow many more. But we are facing difficulty with some legacies)," he said in an apparent attack on the previous UPA government.
