Fadnavis Reads Out Maharashtra Budget 2023 in State Assembly

According to a PTI report, Fadnavis began reading the state legislature's Lower House's budgetary allocations around 2:00 PM. Instead of using a traditional paper document, he read the budgeting provisions aloud from an iPad. Given that he is in charge of the finances, Fadnavis is presenting the state budget for the first time.

Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sudhir Mungantiwar served as finance minister from 2014 to 2019 while Fadnavis was the state's chief minister. In June 2022, the Shinde-led administration was established, which is co-ruled by the BJP and his Shiv Sena group.
