Nirmala Sitharaman shortens the short budget speech after feeling bad
NEW DELHI: The finance minister on Saturday interrupted his budget speaks in Lok sabha since he felt bad after talking for 160 minutes.
Sitharaman had only two pages of her speaks unread when she appeared uneasy and was seen wiping sweat from her forehead.
She was offered candies by her ministerial colleagues, but that did not help and she opted to discontinue the speaks asking Speaker Om Birla to consider the remaining part of her speaks as read.
This was the longest Budget speaks by any finance minister.
