The main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday said it would move an adjournment motion in both Houses of Parliament on Monday to demand a discussion on the alleged scam in Commonwealth Games deals.
"We have been consistently raising the issue in both Houses (of Parliament) for so many days and surprisingly the government is silent on the huge corruption in Commonwealth Games deals," BJP leader Gopinath Munde told reporters in New Delhi.
He said the BJP has decided to move "an adjournment motion in both Houses Monday seeking suspension of the question hour and a discussion on the issue".
"Neither is the Prime Minister (Manmohan Singh) nor is UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi speaking on the issue," Munde said, adding that the government should take a decision and inform Parliament about what they are doing.
He said the Opposition was not satisfied with the replies of Sports Minister M S Gill and Urban Development Minister S Jaipal Reddy.
"Ask them any detail and they would say they don't know. They have crossed all the limits. Somebody should take the responsibility. The government is trying to push the issue under the carpet," he said.
