New Delhi: Bihar BJP leader and former deputy chief minister of the state, Sushil Kumar Modi, said on Wednesday that FIR should be lodged against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh too in the coal blocks allocation case.
Sushil Kumar tweeted today – "If FIR can be lodged against former coal secretary, Mr Parekh by the CBI, then why not against the PM who as in-charge, coal, approved the proposal."
Former coal secretary Prakash Chandra Parakh today held Manmohan Singh equally responsible in the coal scam. He said that the PM, who held charge of coal ministry then, must also be named as the third conspirator in coal scam.
Predictably, the main Opposition, the BJP hit at the PM and slammed the CBI for filing case against Parakh. BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said that his party had been demanding PM`s resignation from day one and added that the `buck stopped` with Singh.
Meanwhile, the Congress, reacting to the attacks by the BJP said that Opposition was repeating the same thing for years now. Information and Broadcasting Minister, Manish Tewari said that unwarranted and uncalled comments should not be made on the matter.
Former coal secretary PC Parakh, has been booked by the investigating agency in the coal scam.
