Stepping up its attack on the government, BJP on Tuesday demanded suspension of Question Hour in Parliament to discuss the Commonwealth Games scam and the privilege motion against sports minister Ajay Maken.
"BJP demands suspension of Question Hour in Parliament to discuss CWG scam and Privilege Motion against Sports Minister Ajay Maken," BJP leader SS Ahluwalia told reporters in New Delhi.
The decision was taken at a meeting of the BJP Parliamentary Party.
Contending that Maken had misled the nation by his statement in Parliament on CWG appointments, BJP insisted that they will not spare the government on this issue.
"We will not only discuss the statement, we will also discuss the Shunglu Committee reports, the functioning of the CWG Organising Committee and observations of the CAG," Ahluwalia said,
"We are not going to spare the government on this issue," he said.
