Ranchi: Jharkhand Assembly Speaker C P
Singh on Wednesday asked the state government to probe how a local
newspaper could publish purported details of the budget of
2012-13 even before it was tabled in the house.

"Get it probed how the budget contents leaked and take
action against any erring official within a week," Singh told
Chief Minister Arjun Munda in the house.

The Speaker ruling came after Jharkhand Vikas Morcha
(Prajatantric) MLA Pradip Yadav drew the attention of the
chair to a newspaper carrying a report on purported budget
details today even before the government tabled it.
