Serial petitioner advocate M L Sharma moves Supreme Court against interim budget, challenges validity

Several governments in the past has presented interim budgets.

Serial petitioner advocate M L Sharma, who is known for his petitions rejected by courts, has yet another filed a PIL, and this time his target is the interim budget presented by finance minister Piyush Goyal today.

Challenging the validity of the interim budget in his petition, advocate ML Sharma had filed a petition against it at the Supreme Court saying that there is no provision for an interim budget in the constitution. He says that the budget is a fraud on the constitution. Sharma also alleges that government has obtained the signature of the President on the budget fraudulently, as he was not informed that there is no provision for interim budget in the constitution.

Advocate M L Sharma added that the interim budget was a fraud on parliament as it was presented by the government for political benefits.

Just yesterday, M L Sharma’s petition against appointment of former CBI special director Rakesh Asthana as director general of Bureau of Civil Aviation Security was junked by the Supreme Court. Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi had said that the petition had no coherence, as it included multiple issues with no connection with each other.

Earlier too, several petitions by Sharma has been dismissed by courts, and he also has been fined and reprimanded for filing frivolous petitions. This petition against the interim budget filed by him is also destined to be rejected.

Interim budgets presented by previous governments

Successive governments in the past had presented interim budgets in their last year of rule. Moreover, the apex court is unlikely to interfere in a matter which is fully in the domain of legislature.
