  • The Supreme Court said it found nothing wrong in the government’s move to advance the presentation of the Union Budget in Parliament by almost a month, on February 1, amid the run-up to the elections in five States.
  • Mr. Sharma, in a PIL petition, had sought the postponement of the annual Budget till after the elections are over as it could contain sops to influence the voters in the Assembly elections, and was thus a violation of the poll code.
