Kapil Sibal slams BJP over Coalgate scam
Lucknow, Sep 09 (ANI): Union HRD Minister Kapil Sibal assailed Bharatiya Janata Party by saying that the Chief Ministers of states ruled by it should resign as they endorsed the final allotments of coal blocks. Speaking to media persons in Lucknow, Sibal said that the BJP had a black ideology a black mindset and they should stay away from commenting on the coal blocks allocation. It is the latest in a series of corruption scandals to have plagued Prime Minister Manmohan Singhs second term in office, weakening his government at a time when it has struggled to pass landmark economic reforms such as liberalising Indias retail sector. Singh has denied any wrongdoing in the allocation of 142 coalfields by a government panel between 2004 and 2009.
