'Govt. stand is quite clear on coalgate': Sriprakash Jaiswal
New Delhi, Sep 6 (ANI): Union Coal Minister Sriprakash Jaiswal on Thursday said the government's stand is quite clear on the coal blocks allocation issue, and urged major political parties to allow the smooth functioning of Parliament.
Jaiswal, who was reacting to Mayawati's views that the UPA Government, should find a middle way on coal controversy, said the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo has her own viewpoints.
"Behenji (Mayawati) has her won viewpoints. The government has already done what was required to be done. The major political parties should now support the government," he said.
Mayawati earlier today said the bill seeking to provide reservation to SCs and STs in promotion in government jobs could not be passed in the Parliament because of the uproar, and urged the Central Government to take strong steps to ensure that the house runs properly.
"In this condition, our party wants to say to the Congress-led Central Government that if it wants the bill to be passed, it should first all take strong steps to ensure that the house runs properly," said Mayawati.
"And for this to take place, the Central Government should find a middle way on coal controversy and stop the chaos created by the BJP and its allies in Parliament. The scam surrounding the coal blocks allocation is equally important. Government should also find a way out to tackle all those creating disturbance in the house over the quota bill," she added.
The uproar over the coalgate continued for the 12th day in Parliament with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) form on its demand for Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh's resignation.
Both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha were adjourned till tomorrow after the BJP-led opposition triggered ruckus on the coal blocks allocation issue.
The Monsoon Session of Parliament ends on September 7. (ANI)
