Dhami highlighted the need to incorporate the concerns and solutions for the common people in the Budget.

“We have started an initiative – we seek everyone’s suggestions for the Budget. This Budget is not just a government document, that it will be presented in a format. I believe that it should be inclusive of everyone’s sentiments, aspirations and expectations. The needs of the common people and the solutions for them should be included in the Budget. Ever since I started shouldering this responsibility (as the CM), we have considered public participation important. Budget should be as per the sentiments of the people,” CM Dhami said in a public address.
