On Monday, TS CM K Chandrasekhar Rao, who held a meeting with leaders on agriculture budget-related issues, which is a very important sector for the state and decided to take up more programmes and schemes for farmers.
Later, Officials said the entire State budget should be only one and the Constitution guidelines would not accept of having separate budgets for each department-wise. Under Rule 150 of the legislative guidelines, receipts and expenditure were only treated as budget. Other plans, programmes and schemes would come under the Bills and as such, they cannot be treated as a separate budget, officials informed TS CM.
