It was difficult to understand budget in Konkani: Sr Rane


 Leader of Opposition Pratapsing Rane on Tuesday expressed his displeasure over the government’s failure to make available English copies of Budget 2013-14, which was presented in the State Legislative Assembly on Monday in Konkani for the first time by Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar.
Rane said that he found it difficult to understand the Rs 10,053.24 crore budget with a projected growth of 12 percent GDP for the forthcoming fiscal. Congress legislator Mauvin Godinho also supported Rane and said that ‘though he knows Konkani, it is difficult to understand such technical Konkani’ to which Parrikar assured that copies of next year’s budget would be made available in Konkani, English and Marathi.
