Amritsar: The BJP on Monday said it will grill
the central government on the issues of corruption, terrorism
and non-inclusion of Prime Minister from the ambit of Lokpal
in the monsoon session of the Parliament, which starts
on Sunday.

The BJP will not allow smooth functioning of both the
Houses if the Congress-led UPA government does not address
these issues, BJP chief spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad told
reporters here.

On the Lokpal issue, he said the draft approved by the
cabinet is below expectation and the party supports inclusion
of the Prime Minister in its ambit.
On the 2G scam, the party spokesperson said the BJP
demands the CBI probe against P Chidambaram, the then Finance
Minister when the 2G Spectrum allocation was made, and asked
why Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and UPA chairperson Sonia
Gandhi are maintaining "silence" over the matter.
Prasad also sought inclusion of all the suspects in the
ongoing CBI probe into the cash for vote scam, saying the
Congress had compromised with principals to cling onto power
at the Centre.
