Budget likely to be postponed by a day: Government sources

Hours after sitting Lok Sabha MP from Malappuram in Kerala, E Ahamed, died after he suffered a heart attack during President Pranab Mukherjee's address to the joint session of Parliament, sources from the Government said that Union Budget is likely to be postponed for a day.

Traditionally, the House adjourns for a day to mourn the death of a sitting member. An adjournment today could delay the presentation of the Union Budget.

As per tradition and established norms, the House adjourns for a day, after mourning the departed sitting member, who has died either during the inter-session period or during the session itself.

On July 18 last year, the first day of the Monsoon Session if Parliament, the Lok Sabha was adjourned to mourn the death of sitting BJP member Dalpat Singh Paraste from Shahdol in Madhya Pradesh. Paraste had died on June 1.
