Mumbai, Jan 4: Shiv Se President Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday demanded that the rendra Modi government should postpone the upcoming union budget till the assembly elections to the five states are completed. “A delegation of Shiv Se MPs will meet the President of India for this soon. We feel that ruling Bharatiya Jata Party may try to manipulate and mislead people in the union budget,” Thackeray said, addressing a meeting of district party leaders here. He questioned why should the union budget be announced when the dates for the elections to five state assemblies - Goa, Manipur, Punjab, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh - were announced by the Election Commission of India earlier on Wednesday.
