PM attacks Opposition for stalling Parliament on PAC issue

Jaipur, Aug. 10. The Prime Minister, Atal Behari Vajpayee, today lashed out at the Opposition parties for stalling proceedings in Parliament on the issue of the CVC report on defence procurements for the Kargil War not being given to the Public Accounts Committee and said problems could not be solved by raising an uproar.

``In our days, we never created a scene. Now it has become a disease and no one knows who can catch it,'' Mr. Vajpayee said, addressing a BJP rally here.

``Parliament mein shorgul sey samassyayen hal nahin hogi (problems will not be solved merely by raising a din in the House),'' he said.

Mr. Vajpayee said the BJP had never put its interests above those of the nation. In a democracy, the objective should be to serve the people and not create social tension.

``Parliamentary problems should be solved in Parliament amicably or one should go to the people,'' the Prime Minister said, adding the coming Assembly elections by this year-end and the Lok Sabha polls next year would be a test for every party.
