With Monsoon Session of Parliament coming to an end, BJP today said the party will now go to the streets to make people aware of the government's "wrong doings" on various fronts.
"We are not demanding mid-term polls but we want the government to go. The reason being the government has not only failed on all fronts but is also deeply involved in corruption," BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu told reporters outside Parliament.
The monsoon session of Parliament came to an end after most of its sittings were washed out over the coal block allocation issue with BJP remaining unrelenting on its demand for resignation of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
Naidu said, "It is not one issue of 2G or coal allocation or CAG reports...(There have been) scam after scam and the government is neck-deep in corruption. We will go from Parliament to the streets now and tell people about it and create awareness in public."
Charging the government with "wrong doings", the BJP leader said, "The government has failed on the price front. Rupee value is going down, economy is in a very bad shape.
"So people of the country will be happy if this government goes. That is why we want the resignation of the government. We are ready to go to the people anytime."
Taking a dig at UPA allies, he said, "The parties which are talking of mid-term polls should first withdraw support to the government. They are supporting the government in the evening and talking of mid-term polls in the morning. That will not serve any purpose."
On coal block allocation issue, he said, "It is very clear that PMO has opposed the auction of coal blocks...Who made the allocation? It is the central government, it is PMO. So that is why this demand of resignation."
Naidu said, "We have tried our best to convince (the government) about the reasonable demand of cancelling the allocations and order a high-level inquiry. Then we said we are ready for a debate. But they did not agree."
