New Delhi: Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy on Wednesday justified use of a certain phrase by Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj with regard to the coal block allocation issue whch has been objected to by the Congress.
Swamy said there was nothing unparliamentarily about the phrase `mota maal` which was used by Swaraj while alleging that the Congress party received bribes in the allocation.
"These two words convey very graphically what in English will be called as a bribe. Therefore, the catchy phrase is easy to understand for the masses of India," Swamy said in a statement.
Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and Finance Minister P Chidambaram had taken objection to the use of the phrase by Swaraj at a press conference on Monday.
