Congress on Tuesday appeared to disapprove of union minister Ajit Singh speaking on policy issues on civil aviation outside Parliament, saying ministers must keep it in mind not to give any statement outside the House while the session is on.
"I am not aware what statement the minister has given outside Parliament. When Parliament is running, the ministers definitely keep in mind the fact that no statement is given outside Parliament," party spokesperson Rashid Alvi said.
Ajit Singh's RLD is the latest entrant to the UPA, joining the alliance just a few months back before the UP Assembly elections.
He said the Air India has to face a number of problems and it is a very sensitive issue being discussed between the government and the airlines administration.
Launching a scathing attack on Singh, the Opposition threatened to bring a privilege motion against him for speaking on policy issues on civil aviation outside when the House was in session.
They also wanted to know what the government was doing to resolve the 8-day impasse with 71 pilots being sacked for their stir.
