Despite not being allowed to speak in Parliament by the Opposition which is demanding the Prime Minister’s resignation, MoS V Narayanasamy, defended the party against allegations and said that Congress wants a Parliamentary debate on the CAG report.
“We want a Parliamentary debate. We want the Parliament to function, but the BJP is shying away,” he told CNN IBN.
He also said the Prime Minister would give a “fitting reply” to the Opposition on the issue.
“The PM will give BJP a fitting reply on this coal allocation issue,” he added.
“One by one, every parliamentary institution has been subverted by Congress and it doesn’t suit them,” Mitra said to CNN-IBN during a late night debate.
“The Congress completely scuttles debates, they interrupt and outshout,” Mitra added.
Yesterday five BJP MPs had walked out of the Joint Parliamentary Committee(JPC). Mitra said this had to happen since the government had scuttled parliamentary institutions.
“The JPC walk out had to happen. The way the government has systematically scuttled parliamentary institutions, be it JPC or PAC (Public Accounts Committee),” he said.
“The JPC wants to summon Atal Bihari Vajpayee and everybody else who was part of the NDA regime on the Telecom scam, while the biggest scamsters in this, and people who are directly responsible like Prime Minister Manmohan Singh without whose knowledge this wouldn’t have happened, are not being summoned,” he added.
