Stormy scenes are expected in Lok Sabha today as the members will participate in the discussion on the ‘White Paper’, tabled by Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman comparing the economic management during 10 years of the Congress-led UPA government with that of 10 years of the Bharatiya Janata Party-ruled dispensation.

As per the List of Business in the Lower House for the day, the Union Finance Minister will move, “That this House do consider the White Paper on the Indian Economy and its impact on lives of the people of India”.

The nearly 60-page White Paper, which was tabled in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha by Sitharaman on Thursday, says that the banking crisis was one of the most important and infamous legacies of the UPA government.
