New Delhi: Prime minister Manmohan Singh, who is facing opposition onslaught over a series of scams on Monday said that the budget session of the Indian Parliament is "very crucial" and hoped that the proceedings will be peaceful and productive, reports PTI.

The budget has to be debated and passed by the two houses of Parliament," he told reporters at Parliament House.
