New Delhi, July 26 (ANI): Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh on Monday said that there is no truth in the allegation put forward by the BJP that the CBI is the Congress Bureau of Investigation.
"I refute this allegation that the CBI is Congress Bureau of Investigation. The Centre was not misusing the CBI in the former Gujarat Home Minister Amit Shah case," Dr Singh told reporters ahead of the monsoon session of the parliament.
"The Opposition knows that the Sohrabuddin Sheikh case is a part of the Supreme Court directive and we are ready for discussion on any issue, and there are substantive issues to be discussed and legislated," he added.
Dr Singh further appealed to the opposition to aim for a 'peaceful and productive' Parliament session.
"We hope this session of the Parliament would be peaceful and productive. We have a lot of important issues of national importance to debate. We want the Parliament to function smoothly," he said.
The government is going to face the Opposition heat during the session, mainly over rising prices.
The illegal mining issue in Karnataka, the situation in Jammu and Kashmir and the controversy surrounding the Bhopal Gas tragedy is also expected to generate heat during the month-long session.
The economic blockade in Manipur, the delay in the preparations for the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, the Ranganath Mishra Commission Report and the Gorkhaland issue will also come up for discussion during the session.
Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee is expected to face the Opposition's ire on railway accidents. (ANI)
