Hitting back at the Congress for its insinuations about Nitin Gadkari's business affairs, the BJP on Wednesday asked why no action has been initiated against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in the coal allocations controversy and Robert Vadra over his controversial land deals.
Speaking to the media, BJP spokesman Ravi Shankar Prasad said: "We are putting some straight questions. Why are the wrongdoings of Robert Vadra not being investigated? Why are the facts being hidden from the public? Why is there an attempt to shield him? Why is the Congress maintaining a conspicuous silence on this issue? What was the role of the Prime Minister in the coal row and why is it not being probed? He was the coal minister when the coal block allocations were made. Is he not answerable for it?"
He also asked why the Prime Minister was not willing to appear before the JPC looking into the 2G Spectrum allocations when he had earlier offered to depose before the PAC. He alleged that the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate were not being allowed to conduct a fair inquiry into the Aircel-Maxis deal and sought to know "who is pressuring these bodies".
