The party also said that their president Sonia Gandhi had tried her best to end the logjam but the Opposition was not relenting. Sonia Gandhi called Sushma Swaraj thrice to pacify her and end the logjam in Parliament.
The main Opposition has been relentlessly demanding the resignation of Prime Minisiter Manmohan Singh, along with the cancellation of 142 coal blocks which has been allotted and a fair and independent probe.
Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj had told the media yesterday in Mumbai that if these two demands were met by the government then the impasse in the Parliament could end and both the Houses could function smoothly.
