NEW DELHI: The Minister of Finance continued the tradition of reciting poetry during the presentation of the Budget.

On Saturday, while presenting the 2020 Union Budget in Parliament, the finance minister quoted a small verse in Kashmir and translated it into Hindi.

Humara watan khilte hue Shalimar Bagh jaise, humara watan Dal Lake mein khilte hue kamal jaisa, nau jawanon ke garam khoon jaisa, mere watan tera watan, humara watan, duniya ka sabse pyara watan said.
