New Delhi:

Senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge on Friday said "only ‘Jumlas’ will come out today". In a veiled attack on the Narendra Modi-led BJP government Kharge criticised the Centre's attempt to introduce the populist schemes, saying the Budget 2019 will be presented keeping an eye on the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections only.

In an apparent reference to the earlier budgets presented by the Modi government between 2014 and 2018, the former Railway miniter further said, "Budgets they have presented so far have not really benefitted general public". "They have only 4 months when will they implement the schemes?" Kharge reiterated.

Interim Finance Minister Piyush Goyal will unveil the Union Budget 2019 in Parliament on Friday, February 1, 2019. Goyal will present his budget speech at 11 am in the Parliament.The first phase of the Budget session that started on January 31, will continue till February 11.

This is the last Parliament session of the Narendra Modi-led BJP government before the Lok Sabha Elections 2019 due by May. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley missed the session as he has been undergoing medical treatment for the past few weeks in the United States. The second session will take place after the General Elections 2019.
