Pre-Budget consultations: FM to meet Congress leaders

Finance minister P Chidambaram will hold pre-Budget consultations with Congress leaders here on Thursday amid expectations that partymen will pitch for measures to woo the middle class and the youth as also a better deal for farmers.

Party leaders are expected to present their wish-list for 2013-14 Budget to make it a 'please-all' affair at a time when Lok Sabha polls are not far away.

Also, at a separate meeting with state finance ministers on Thursday, Chidambaram is likely to discuss the broad outline of the GST in the upcoming Budget.
