Resignation fear:Pranab Mukherjee afraid of Mamata Banerjee?


Mamata Banerjee and Pranab Mukherjee
New Delhi, Mar 18: Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee presented Union Budget 2012, it seems that he has not yet come out of the thrill what he might have felt while presenting the general budget. While addressing industry leaders in New Delhi on Sunday, Mar 18, Mr Mukherjee informed that he was "extra-careful" while formulating the budget to make his other colleague in the Parliament happy.

Citing Mr Mukherjee's statement, it seems that he might be scared of West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo, Mamata Banerjee who left Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi to meet with a terrible experience after the Railway Budget 2012. Mamata protested against Trivedi's proposal of train ticket fare hike and demanded his resignation.

Mr Mukherjee on Sunday stated, ""... Knowing the mood of the persons who matters here (in Parliament), I had to be extra careful and I had to make my colleagues extra careful. Therefore, many of things which could have been done, rather should have been done, could not be done just at the time of the Budget."

"While fiscal consolidation will help create more space for private investment demand, improved financing and spending on infrastructure will help strengthen investment," added Mr Mukherjee.
