Politicos react as report blames former UPA govt for coal scam

New Delhi/Lucknow, Aug 27 (ANI): A follow up report by Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India dealing with illegalities in coal scam got mixed reviews from politicians on Wednesday as it blamed the previous UPA government for tampering with the recommendations made by a screening committee in 2007 for allocation of coal blocks. Congress leader Manish Tewari said that for sixteen long years there were many Prime Ministers who allocated coal blocks, seeing that only a certain individual cannot be blamed.

Meanwhile, Samajwadi Party leader, Naresh Agarwal, said that based on a decision taken by the Prime Minister one cannot classify him as the sole reason for the scam. Aug 27, 2014

BJP terms SC's verdict on appointment of tainted ministers a wise decision

New Delhi/ Bangalore, Aug 27 (ANI): The BJP on Wednesday said that the Supreme Court was wise in not laying down the law on disqualification of ministers.
