No change in Cong stand on resignations

The Congress has been demanding resignations of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje for allegedly favouring former Indian Premier League chief Lalit Modi and that of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan over admission and recruitment-related Vyapam scam.

While the government had listed the IPL issue to be discussed under rule 193, the Congress wants that the issue be discussed under an adjournment motion.

Singhvi said: "The lower house proposes to discuss IPL and Congress wants to discuss it under adjournment process."

On the introduction of the GST bill in the Rajya Sabha, he said: "We are happy that Arun Jaitley finds GST of public purpose after years of opposition by the BJP."

"GST should come, but the government was introducing it without any discussion in the Business Advisory Committee," he said adding that the Bharatiya Janata Party was trying to create confusion and hiding its own economic failure.
