Internal Cong politics behind Parl disruptions :SP
SP saw "internal Congress politics" behind the disruptions by the BJP in Parl wondering whether it was for replacing PM with Rahul Gandhi.
New Delhi: Samajwadi Party, which is supporting UPA from outside, on Tuesday saw "internal Congress politics" behind the disruptions by the BJP in Parliament wondering whether it was for replacing Prime Minister Manmohan Singh with Rahul Gandhi.
"Some people from inside Congress want to remove Manmohan Singh and bring in the Yuvraaj. I have my doubts if this politics (demand of PMs resignation by BJP) is being played out from within Congress," senior SP leader Mohan Singh said.
Congress, however, outrightly rejected this statement with party general secretary Janardan Dwivedi saying, "There can be no bigger false imagination than this."
"The party has repeated this several times...Before 2009 elections, said in our manifesto that our Prime Ministerial candidate is Manmohan Singh. After that also, we have said this several times that he will continue to remain the Prime Minister till 2014. He (Mohan Singh) should not bother about this," he said.
Regretting the repeated adjournment of Parliament, Singh alleged BJP was raking up the CAG report to prepare the grounds for the coming elections.
Meanwhile, SP General Secretary Ramgopal Yadav refused to offer any comments on the remarks made by party leader Mohan Singh.
On the disruption of proceedings in the House, Ramgopal Yadav said, "Only a debate can help in moving towards the resolution of issues. Its not necessary that whatever the Prime Minister has said is correct and the allegations of BJP may also not be fully correct."
He said only a debate on the issue can "bring out the real picture...After that, if BJP is not satisfied, then they have every right to do whatever they want to".
Asked if the Prime Minister was right in attacking the CAG report, the SP leader said, "CAG is a constitutional body but it is not necessary that its report is always correct."
The Prime Minister had yesterday said the CAG report on the coal block allocation was flawed and misleading.
