Congress Party General Secretary and member of parliament (MP) Rahul Gandhi arrives in parliament prior to the deliverance of the national budget in New Delhi on March 16, 2012. India's government was due to deliver its budget as an acrimonious split in its ranks over hiking rail fares highlighted the increasingly dysfunctional nature of the ruling coalition. The Congress-led administration, already battered by a string of graft scandals, is under financial market pressure to cut public spending and rein in a ballooning deficit at the same time as spurring slowing growth.
