No passage of bills in Parliament till Bansal, Kumar resign: BJP
New Delhi: Setting a tough condition before the government, BJP on Tuesday said it will not allow passage of any bill in Parliament till Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal and Law Minister Ashwani Kumar resign or are removed.
The opposition party also made it clear that it will not allow the passage of the National Food Security Bill and the Land Acquisition Bill, the two key measures the government is very keen about.
At the BJP Parliamentary Party meeting chaired by LK Advani, it decided that party leaders would meet Speaker Meira Kumar against any move to rush through the legislations amid din.
"There is no question of participating in the proceedings of Parliament till the two ministers – Bansal and Kumar – resign or are removed... We want the National Food Security Bill and the Land Acquisition Bill to be passed after proper discussion. We will not allow their hasty passage without discussion amid din," Deputy Leader of BJP in Lok Sabha Gopinath Munde told reporters here.
Bansal is in the eye of a storm following the arrest of his nephew by CBI in a bribery case involving key railway appointments, while Kumar is embroiled in the coalgate controversy.
