A day after Tamil Nadu finance minister O Panneerselvam presented the revised budget, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) treasurer and leader of opposition M K Stalin expressed disappointment at party members not being allowed to talk during the business advisory committee session.

Explaining the walkout of DMK members in the Business Advisory Committee meeting, he said the DMK members were not given a chance to speak in the meeting and so the DMK felt there was no need to convene such a meeting.

He indicated he was ready to allocate funds from the MLA
