The budget session of the Punjab assembly was on Thursday curtailed by one more day, while the opposition Congress continued to boycott the proceedings for the seventh consecutive day, protesting against the suspension of its nine MLAs from the House.
As per the report of the business advisory committee adopted by the assembly, the proceedings of the House will now be transacted till March 25.

As a result, the discussion on the state budget has now been reduced from three to two days. Earlier, the budget session was to continue till March 28, but later the duration was reduced to March 26.
