THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Finance Minister Dr Thomas Isaac who presented the last budget of the Pinarayi Vijayan Government just months away for assembly polls, has set a record in his own name. He has earned the reputation of being the longest budget presenter in the history of the Kerala Assembly. His budget presentation lasted for three hours and 18 minutes. He was not able to read the full budget even after taking so much time. He shortened his presentation by reading the main portions after Speaker reminded him that today is Friday and the presentation should be stopped before 12.30 pm. The previous longest budget presented took two hours and 54 minutes. It was the budget prepared by K M Mani in 2016. However, the budget was presented by Oommen Chandy on behalf of the minister.
