THRISSUR, Aug 25 � Dubbing the coal blocks allocation controversy as a �non-issue�, Congress today challenged the BJP to bring in a no-confidence motion against the UPA government instead of stalling Parliament proceedings, reports PTI.
The BJP would not be bold enough to take such a course of action as it would not only expose its �true colour� but also fissures in the party-led NDA, Congress spokesman and JPC chairman P C Chacko told a meet-the-press programme here.
It would be fair on the part of the opposition to �bring a no-confidence motion against the UPA government instead of immobilising Parliament on a non-issue,� he said.
�It is the duty of the responsible opposition to show readiness to discuss the report of the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) on the presumptive loss of Rs 1.86 lakh crore in allocation of coal blocks,� Chacko, who heads the Joint Parliamentary Committee probing the 2G scam, said.
�However, it is not desirable in a democratic set-up to demand the resignation of a democratically elected Prime Minister, accusing him of corruption, based on the CAG�s findings of presumptive loss,� he said.
