Whether and how he breaks from the past in his maiden budget will be known Thursday only, but Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has finally decided to follow the tradition of bringing his papers in a suitcase to Parliament.

Sources said he was not much inclined to carry the suitcase, unlike his predecessors who would clasp the suitcase and flaunt it to cameras while entering Parliament on the Budget day.

Arun Jaitley was recently shown two suitcases to choose from and he was said to have shown no particular preference.
