Act against Chhattisgarh CM, else ready to face Nation Protest: Cong warns BJP
With a move on Coalgate, today Congress alleged that Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh is all responsible for violation over the coal allocation block process and if BJP wants to take action against anyone then it should go against its regional governments.
“BJP is spreading anarchy across the country using a CAG report. The same CAG had found irregularities related to coal mining in Chhattisgarh that led the state exchequer to a loss of Rs 1,000 crore,” Congress spokesman Manish Tewari said in a statement.
Standing ahead Chhattisgarh CM on the allegation of Opposition party which demands Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s resignation to cheat the nation with irregularities in coal block allocations during 2004-2009 when he headed the Coal ministry, Tewari asked Opposition to cancelled all block allocation made to state by Centre.
Report said that in 2010-11 audit report, CAG hit out Chhattisgarh Mineral Development Corp Ltd for irregularity in commercial mining of coal from a block allocated by the Centre.
Talking to media, Union Coal Minister Sriprakash Jaiswal rejected all allegation of BJP and said, “BJP has no right to demand PM’s resignation.” He asked BJP to act against their govt CMs from Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.
Jaiswal said that CAG report is pure and warned BJP that if it does not allow debate in Parliament, then Congress workers geld a protest against the BJP across the country.
“I have asked our Congress workers to lodge FIR against BJP’s unlawful protest in Kanpur,” minister told reporters, added, “I warn BJP to refrain from protests, they have not seen Congress workers’ anger. We will not tolerate BJP workers’ lawlessness.”
