Congress declines comment on SC`s criticism of Centre on missing Coalgate files
New Delhi: Congress on Thursday steered clear of the issue of the Centre facing the ire of the Supreme Court on missing files relating to coal blocks allocation.
"It is a matter concerning government and the cabinet to respond", party spokesman Raj Babbar told reporters.
He was asked to comment on the apex court slamming the government for not lodging FIRs on missing files and raising a question as to whether it is an attempt to destroy the records in the case.
Holding that the missing documents are vital for the probe in the scam, the apex court directed the Coal Ministry to lodge complaint with CBI if it fails to trace any document sought by the agency.
