Reconvening of Parliament vindicates BJP stand: Jaitley
New Delhi, Mar 30 (UNI) Welcoming the decision to reconvene Parliament session on May 10, the BJP however asserted this vindicated the party's stand that it had been adjourned sine die to bring an ordinance to save ''one particular person.'' ''The Government had abandoned the ordinance route only after its design was exposed,'' party General Secretary Arun Jaitley today alleged.
Asking the government to explain why was the Parliament adjourned sine die, he said ''this only goes to vindicate our stand that the Congress Government wanted to bring an ordinance to save one particular person.'' ''Once they were caught red-handed they decided against bringing in an ordinance. Finally wisdom prevailed that you cannot play a fraud on the constitution and subvert Parliament,'' his statement said.
Mr Jaitley said that had the government followed a straight route on the ''office of profit'' controversy through a bill being introduced in the Parliament, ''the country could have avoided an unnecessary debate for last 15 days.'' UNI KAS/MCN VD BD1821
