"It (allegation) is one-sided," Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajiv Shukla told reporters outside Parliament House. He accused the BJP of "hiding Law Ministry opinions. Whatever has been done, it was done as per the Law Ministry directive and Home Ministry has no role."
Blaming the Opposition for disruption, he said, "Everyday Opposition is disrupting the House on some pretext or other. It has become a 'tamasha' (drama). If there is any issue, it can be raised during the Zero Hour.
Opposition has no role in running the House they are only contributing to disruption of the House." Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi, however, declined to comment on opposition's allegation against Chidambaram that he misued his office to help a former client. "It should be asked to Chidamabram," Alvi said.
