Puducherry, Aug. 24 (ANI): The budget session of the Puducherry Assembly will begin today.

This is the first session of the territorial assembly since the Congress came to power in the Union Territory.

Chief Minister V. Narayanasamy, who holds the finance portfolio, will present the budget on August 29.

The previous N. Rangasamy-led administration had passed the vote on account for government expenditure in the first six months in March.
