New Delhi: As Parliament proceedings were
disrupted for the second consecutive day over Opposition`s
demand of adjournment motions, Congress on Wednesday stepped up the
attack on BJP accusing it of using the "language of Mafiosi"
for its comments that rising inflation could lead to violence.
Party spokesperson Rashid Alvi also slammed BJP for its
decision to boycot Home Minister P Chidambaram in Parliament
and ridiculed NDA`s decision asking its MPs to declare that
they have no blackmoney abroad.
"Yesterday, BJP said there could be violence in the
country due to price rise. Such irresponsible statement by the
opposition party is unfortunate. In what direction, the main
opposition wants to take the country whose foundation is
based on non-violence. This language is not political. It
looks this is the langauage of Mafiosi," Alvi said.
Attacking the government for rising inflation and
continued price rise in the absence of any concrete steps, BJP
leader Yashwant Sinha had yesterday feared that it may become
a reason for people to vent their anger through violence.
Alvi said the attitude of the Opposition in the last two
days of the session shows how "irresponsible" it is and
exposes how much regard BJP has for Parliament.
He said it was unfortunate that oppostion parties
continued with disruptions even as Prime Minister Manmohan
Singh had himself assured them about the government`s
willingness to discuss any issue raised by them.
