BJP in no mood to allow Parliament to run

Neena Vyas

NEW DELHI: The demand for a joint parliamentary committee to go into corruption scandals made inside the two Houses of Parliament here on Wednesday was given a more formal shape later in the day when Leaders of the Opposition Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley gave notices under substantive motions on the same subject in their Houses.

“If the ruling party thinks it can browbeat the Opposition on this issue we will not tolerate it. It is a war of nerves. Let us see how long they try to resist our legitimate demand for a JPC,” Ms. Swaraj told reporters while giving a clear indication that there was no way the Bharatiya Janata Party would allow Parliament to function on Thursday unless its demand was conceded. She added that her party did not want to disrupt Parliament functioning this session, but the government's attitude of trying to prevent the Opposition from raising legitimate concerns about the scandals made it change its mind.
