Kozhikode: Terming that the Kerala budget presented by Finance Minister KM Mani in the Assembly was a "good budget", Industries Minister PK Kunhalikutty said that the budget is a common man`s budget.

Talking to reporters here, Kunhalikutty said "it is a good budget and it is a common man`s budget. We will discuss on that`.

He declined to reply to a query on the remark of Electricity Minister Aryadan Mohammed against Indian Union Muslim League state General Secretary KPA Majeed for expressing displeasure on the budget.

Aryadan had on yesterday expressed his displeasure on the budget saying that the special package of Rs 100 crore announced in the budget cannot rescue the debt-ridden KSRTC.

Responding to this at Malappuram yesterday, Majid had said that if Aryadan had any differences of opinion on the budget, he should resign.

Meanwhile, at Kalpetta in Wayanad district today, Aryadan said `I will express my opinion openly in the Congress parliamentary party meeting. Majid need not interfere in our party affairs`, he said.
