Finance Minister Yair Lapid accused on Monday the haredi parties of causing the deficit he now faces in their term in the previous government.

Lapid was responding to accusations made by United Torah Judaism towards him during a no-confidence motion discussion at the Knesset on Monday.

"You are no longer the head of the finance committee because we got tired of getting instructions from you," Lapid slammed at UTJ MK Moshe Gafni.
