Coal Scandal in India; BJP asked for PM’s Resignation
Two weeks ago, a report was released by the national auditor stating that the main aim of selling coal blocks without viable bidding was just to add on those extra profits worth $34 billion to the accounts of private companies. Based on this, the opposition politicians in Parliament asked India’s Prime Minister to resign.
However, while defending himself, PM twitted on Monday that he or any member of his party has no involvement in this coal scandal tossing the country. In fact, such allegations stating huge amounts of money crisis are absolutely unjustified.
Manmohan Singh was confident enough while defending his government in the Parliament, but the members of Bhartiya Janata Party obscured him badly. They were blaring for PM’s immediate resignation.
Defending on the micro blogging site Twitter, PM’s official site wrote: ‘‘I wish to say that any allegations of impropriety are without basis and unsupported by the facts. The auditor’s observations were clearly disputable”.
At the same time, there were several messages and tweets over the site reproving the auditors for producing such faulty, illogical and disputable reports and calculations.
Being the minister of a country, Singh promised to take the entire responsibility of the situation. He said he would not let the control of government’s coal field allocation method given into the hands of an auction system like this in coming times.
