Parliament proceedings were disrupted again on Wednesday with members in both Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha shouting slogans over the CAG report on coal block allocation and demanding that Prime Minister resigns over the alleged irregularities.
BJP defended its decision to demand Prime Minister’s resignation, saying it owes it to the people in the wake of “regular occurence” of scams and insisted it will continue to press for his removal.
”In both Houses of Parliament today, we demanded Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s resignation. We will continue to strongly press for it as the coal allocation issue is not an isolated incident. The 2G spectrum issue, Commonwealth Games scam, public-private partnership issue of airports and now the coal blocks,” deputy leader of BJP in Rajya Sabha Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters on Tuesday.
He alleged these cases demonstrate that the Manmohan Singh government is one of “scam, shame, scandals, corruption and loot and that BJP is levelling these charges with all responsibility.
