Other recommendation by the advisor were to celebrate public holidays in a meaningful manner, promote physical fitness and yoga among students and online delivery of question papers to the examination centres.

Recently, it was alleged that Yediyurappa would axe farm loan waiver that was started by his predecessor HD Kumaraswamy and Siddaramaiah. It was also alleged that the chief minister is likely to announce Rs 1,500 crore scheme as incentives to the farm sector.

Speaking to a media organisation, food and civil supplies minister K Gopalaiah had said that many schemes are under the scanner. However, by scrapping Anna Bhagya scheme, the Chief Minister would receive severe backlash. Instead, Yediyurappa is likely to reduce the quantity of rice from 7 kg to 5 kg a month.

    With all these major developments in the state budget, it can be assumed that several opposition leaders might express their displeasure in the budget that is all set to be tabled on Thursday.
