While presenting the same figures, CM projected growth rate of 10 per cent.

He said said the main thrust of the budget would be to create employment, sort out mining issue and stabilise the economy.

He also said that the government would ask for an extra 5 years of compensation on the GST issue.

The last date for compensation to come from the Centre on GST charged is 2021.

The CM said that he would seek an extension of 5 years on compensation given by the centre to the state on GST. The deadline expires on 2021.

Later, at media briefing, the chief minister spoke on tourism related issue including those tourists who have been seen parking, cooking and sleeping on the roads.
