Raipur: Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman recently presented the Union Budget through a tablet in bahi-khata style red pouchQuite opposite to the Nirmala Sitharaman's style of carrying the budget papers, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel brought the budget document in 'desi' type. 

Bhupesh Baghel grabbed attention when he entered the state Assembly to present the annual Budget carrying a briefcase made out of cow dung. 

Sanskrit phrase 'गोमय वसते लक्ष्मी' is visibly etched on the briefcase. This phrase has repeatedly been used in Upanishad. The literal translation of the phrase is Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, who live in cow dung. 

The budget session of the Chhattisgarh Assembly began on Monday and the state's budget for 2022-23 was tabled in the House on Wednesday.
