Narayanasamy said a vote on account would be adopted in the session for earmarking funds as an interim arrangement as a full budget cannot be presented as the Finance Ministry’s approval for the fund allocation sought was awaited.

Speaker V Vaithilingam, who is now in Delhi, told PTI that he had reconvened the session as the previous session on January 24 and 25 was adjourned sine die, but not prorogued.
