Union coal minister Sriprakash Jaiswal has alleged that BJP and other opposition parties were not allowing Parliament to proceed on the issue of FDI even though the government was ready for a debate.



Talking to the reporters in Sambhal Jaiswal, who came to attend the concluding ceremony of Kalki mahotsava Friday night, said, the government was ready for a debate under section 184 but the BJP and other opposition parties were stalling Parliament.


He alleged that BJP was unnecessarily protesting in the name of FDI and coal block allotment, even when the states have been given a free hand whether they implement FDI or not.

Jaiswal said, he wanted to question those opposing FDI whether any debate was conducted on such issue under the rule during NDA regime.

"If it's not bullying then what it is," he said.

The minister alleged that BJP's statement on 2G issue was laughable and smells of conspiracy.

He said that whether its 2G or coal block allotment, CAG report was not completely correct and he alleged, a conspiracy to defame the government.
