Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has asked the Prime Minister to postpone the date of presenting the Union Budget of 2017. The UP CM has written a letter to PM Modi in which he has urged the Centre to delay the budget till the assembly elections are over.

The letter stated that is the Centre presents the budget on the due date it could be possible that states with large number of population might miss out to enjoy any special policy by the government due to the Model code of conduct that has been imposed in five state where the 2017 polls are to be held.

"Since the Election Commission has directed the Centre not announce any special scheme for the five poll bound states after the imposition of Model Code of Conduct, I request the Union Government to present the Union Budget after the elections considering the benefit of the 20 crore people living in the state," the CM stated in the letter.

Yadav also tried to convince the PM by stating that during the 2012 assembly elections the Central Government had postponed the budget in order to conduct polls in an unbiased manner.
