Mannan moved the Appropriation (Supplementary) Bill 2015, which was approved by the House by voice votes allowing the government to spend Tk 95,085,712,000 from the consolidated fund to meet the expenditure of the current fiscal year that ends on June 30.  Different ministries, divisions and institutions sought the additional amount under 22 demands for grant.
