New Delhi, May 10: Describing Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh's remark as unbecoming of a minister, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday, May 10, said that the party would seek the minister's resignation.
"Definitely, if the PM does not act (against him)," BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar told reporters here, when asked whether the BJP will seek his resignation for the comments.
"The comments of [Mr.] Ramesh in a foreign country which were critical of the Government are highly objectionable...it is unbecoming of a Union Minister. The Prime Minister owes an explanation on the internal squabbling within ministers and take action against him," he said.
Javadekar said that the explanation given by the Ramesh for his comments on Home Ministry over Chinese investments in India was the most 'most bizarre'.
"It is a known fact that Chinese hackers have targetted Indian websites, therefore, the Home Ministry has rightly issued the guidelines," he said.
On Saturday, May 9, Environment Minister said in Beijing that the 'overly defensive and alarmist' approach by the Home Ministry towards the entry of Chinese companies would hamper the ties between India and China ties that has been developed after the Copenhagen Summit.
