The Lok Sabha on Monday passed the Interim Budget for the financial year 2019-20 after a day-long discussion.

Finance Minister Piyush Goyal introduced the Appropriation Bill and the Finance Bill amid a din in the House by a voice vote.

The Bills were passed by voice vote after the Finance Minister's reply.

Goyal said the government has worked for all sections of the society and has taken care of them in this budget.

"The poor, farmers and the middle-class are the government's priorities. Our government was the first to increase minimum support price (MSP) for farmers," Goyal said as his speech was interrupted by slogans from the Opposition benches.

Goyal had presented the Interim Budget along with a vote-on-account on February 1.
