Coalgate: Act against C’garh CM, Cong tells BJP
New Delhi: Congress on Sunday asked the BJP to act against Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh for alleged irregularities in mining coal from a block alloted to the state by the Centre.
"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.
Tewari said if a CAG report is the final word for the BJP, then it should seek resignation of the Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh and cancel all the allocations made in the state.
At the same time, there have been wrongdoings of the chief ministers of Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka which have been brought out by the CAG, he said.
"The BJP should first act against its regional governments," Tewari said.
The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG), in its audit report (Civil & Commercial) for 2010-11, had in April pulled up Chhattisgarh Mineral Development Corp Ltd for accepting a single bid for commercial mining of coal from a block allocated by the Centre.
