CM's absence questioned

  Yeddyurappa is on a two-day visit to New Delhi for holding discussions with the Planning Commission.

“The State budget has been finalised. When the plan size has been fixed the necessity of meeting the Planning Commission does not arise,” said Siddaramaiah.

The sanctity of budget discussions is lost if the finance minister (Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa), is absent during the debate.
