    Spending on Vanuatu may fetch a vote in UN when necessary.

    Was looking at the break up of andhra budget, I thought it was a balanced budget and sufficient funds allocated. My point is that situation is not that bad in my opinion. I am confident that Naidu will be able to manage.

    Although I will concede that budget is 7000 cr deficit.
