NEW DELHI, Aug 25 � Rubbishing the no loss argument of the Government in the coal block allocations, BJP today made it clear that it is in no mood to allow Parliament to function till its demand for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh�s resignation is met, reports PTI.
�A nationwide debate is on on this issue though it is not taking place in Parliament. Our strategy does not permit that we allow the government to use Parliament to end this debate without any accountability. We want the debate to go on further,� Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley told reporters here.
�There are occasions when obstruction in Parliament brings greater benefit to the country,� he said.
Jaitley dismissed Chidambaram�s assertion yesterday that there cannot be a loss in the coal block allocations as no mining was done in many cases.
BJP insisted that once the coal blocks were allocated, the valuations of these 142 blocks in the market sky-rocketed.
