Bansal Accuses BJP Of Fascism
New Delhi: Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal Tuesday said BJP’s tactics of obstructing functioning of parliament over its demands reeked of fascism and accused the opposition party of a “diabolical design to subvert the system”.
He said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was negating the parliamentary system with its tactics to stall parliament over its demand for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s resignation over the report on coal block allocation by the Comptroller and Auditor General.
Bansal said the BJP was not prepared for discussion under any rules and was feeling free in its “self-proclaimed majesty of self-isolation”.
He said the BJP concedes that the government has a majority in the house but wants its view to prevail. “This is nothing short of fascism… it reminds you of fascism,” Bansal said. He said the opposition party had no faith in parliamentary devices.
Bansal’s attack on BJP came on a day Congress party president Sonia Gandhi also lambasted the party for stalling proceedings of the house since last week.
