It was the humble 'jhola' rather than the traditional leather briefcase Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee preferred to bring her budget papers to Parliament on Friday.

The patent cloth bag she carries usually hung from her shoulders as she arrived in Parliament to present the Railway Budget 2009-10.

Also, the car in which she came was her personal Maruti Zen rather than the official vehicle she has chosen not to take from the government.
