The Budget Session of Uttar Pradesh legislature will begin on Thursday with the Yogi Adityanath government slated to table the UP Annual Budget 2020-21 on February 18.

In the backdrop of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) facing poll reverses in the recently held Delhi assembly polls, the budget session will be a stormy affair with the opposition likely to corner the Adityanath government on various issues, including law and order.

Although, the UP Annual Budget 2019-20 tabled on February 7, 2019 was to the tune of Rs 4.79 trillion, the total size of the state budget for the current financial year burgeoned to about Rs 4.96 trillion after the tabling of two supplementary budgets in the legislature on July
