Party MP says the UPA government has no right to continue

BJP Rajya Sabha member Bhupinder Yadav on Sunday said the UPA government had no right to continue in the wake of the CAG report on coal blocks allocation.


Speaking at a function organised by the State BJP Legal Cell to felicitate him on his election to Rajya Sabha, Mr. Yadav, who is also an advocate of the Supreme Court, demanded that the government fix accountability. He criticised Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for allotting coal blocks even as he had advised the then Telecommunications Minister A. Raja to auction spectrum airwaves.

Faulting the UPA government for making public letters written by Chief Ministers of BJP-ruled States, he wondered why those addressed by their counterparts from Congress States were not made public.

Former Union Minister and senior BJP leader, Bandaru Dattatreya accused the Congress party of defending the irregularities in coal blocks allocation.

Observing that scam after scam was taking place in the State, he demanded that Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy drop the ministers who received notices from the Supreme Court in connection with Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy’s assets case. He demanded that the government fully reimburse the fee for engineering and other professional courses for BC and other students. BJP national secretary, N. Indrasena Reddy lauded Mr. Yadav on his election to Rajya Sabha.
