Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in her reply to the Budget discussions in Lok Sabha on Saturday said that the Covid-19 pandemic did not stop the Centre from making the necessary reforms. “The Prime Minister has not lost the opportunity due to the pandemic in bringing reforms, ” Sitharaman said. “This Budget coming post-pandemic has set the pace for India to become aatmanirbhar,” she added.

The lower house has moved up at 10 am as Rajya Sabha’s proceedings stand canceled for the day.

In her reply to the Budget discussion in the upper house on Friday, Sitharaman said that this year’s Budget was an attempt to provide a “strong stimulus” to deal with the Covid-19 economic blow. In doing so, she said, not only quick short-term solutions were created, but “we also looked at medium, long term and sustainable growth that will help us remain one of the fastest-growing economies.”

The first leg of the ‘Union Budget 2021’ session will end on Saturday with both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha set to reconvene on March 8.

Meanwhile, three BJP members in Lok Sabha on Friday moved a breach of privilege notice against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, saying, by asking members to observe silence to mourn the death of farmers during agitation without the permission of the Chair was a contempt of the House.
