Throwing all legislative norms and decorum to the winds, K M Mani, who is accused of various corruption allegations, read out the first page of the Budget when the Speaker was not present on the dais. Mani was standing in the fourth row of treasury bench, guarded by UDF legislators and a large number watch and ward staff.
