BHOPAL (Madhya Pradesh): Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) budget 2024-25 ranging between Rs 2,200 crore and Rs 2,500 crore will be presented at the council meeting today (Tuesday).

The key focus will be on the PM's plantations 'Ek Ped Maa Ke Naam', under which lakhs of trees will be planted. Mayor-in-Council (MiC) RK Baghel said, 'Budget aims at well balanced development. Plantation drives like PM's 'Ek Ped Maa Ke Naam' will be the main focus in the Budget.'

Leader of opposition Shabista Zaki said, cornered the ruling BJP in BMC council saying that many initiatives and schemes that were passed in the last budget are still to be implemented.

'Even files of over 10 out of 30 heads of the last Budget have not been made for execution so far.
