BJP’s walkout “unfortunate”: Deepender Singh Hooda
New Delhi: The Congress party on Thursday termed the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) walkout from the Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) meeting “unfortunate,” and dismissed the allegations levelled against the Congress members.
Interacting with media here, lawmaker and Congress leader, Deepender Singh Hooda, said, “Its really unfortunate that the members of the BJP actually staged a walkout, and once they walked out of the JPC, they went to the media, which is against the code of ethics of the JPC. They levelled absolutely false allegations against some of the Congress members, including me. I completely deny whatever the members of the BJP have accused. In fact, it``s rather unfortunate and it``s rather ironical that the party, which destroyed two parliament sessions in asking for a JPC, now wants to vitiate the environment of the JPC.”
The Congress party has dismissed the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) allegation that the Congress members resorted to the use of “foul and unparliamentary language” in the Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) meeting held here on Wednesday.
Earlier on Wednesday, the BJP, led by former Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha, walked out of the JPC meeting probing the 2G scam, after falling out with the Congress party over the issue of calling Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and Finance Minister P. Chidambaram for questioning.
BJP also accused the Congress members of using “foul and unparliamentary language” in the meeting.
Congress MP Manish Tewari, who was also part of the JPC meeting, had said BJP’s move to walk out of the meeting was pre decided.
“It was their game plan to stage walkout. Before walkout the media knew about their moves. This was already in the entire media. I vehemently deny any charge of using un parliamentary language,” he had said.
