Senior BJP leader L K Advani on Thursday targeted the government for continuing to defend Law Minister Ashwani Kumar despite the Supreme Court observation that significant changes have been made in the CBIs coal block probe status report and argued that Parliament was adjourned sine die two days early to deflect opposition pressure.
In his latest blog posting titled The Emperor has no clothes,Advani pointed out that the oppositions anger with the governments conduct has been widely shared by the media. The oppositions minimum demand for allowing the House to function normally was that the Law Minister should resign,and the Railway Minister be sacked, he said.
Advani stressed that almost the entire opposition was angrily demanding that the government be made to pay for the two scams.
Having decided to brazenly defend its two ministers,more particularly its Law Minister,whose dropping from the government would have made the PMs continuance untenable,the government adjourned Parliament sine die two days ahead of schedule on May 8 instead of May 10, Advani said.
