TDP Parliamentary Party leader Nama Nageswar Rao has demanded the resignation of prime minister Manmohan Singh owning moral responsibility for the coal allotments made to several companies in violation of norms as pointed out by the CAG report.
Speaking to reporters on Saturday, he said the government should appoint a joint parliamentary committee JPC) to go into CAG's observations on coal mine allotments which caused Rs 1.86 lakh crore loss to the government. He said his party would corner the government in Parliament on the issue and press the government for explanation.
The TDP would stall Parliament proceedings from Monday, he said. He said the Controller and Auditor General report also found that the government had taken wrong decisions on the Delhi airport modernisation and allotted land to the GMR group for 60 years at nominal rate. This concession to the private industry deprived the government of a revenue of `1,63,557 crore, the TDPP leader said.
