Congress slams on BJP for casting aspersions on Hamid Ansari.

congressNew Delhi: Congress today let-down heavily on BJP for casting aspersions on Rajya Sabha chairman Hamid Ansari in the wake of postponement of the House sine die when the Lokpal Bill was being debated.

Condemning the opposition party of having a regular and repeated history of attacking

Constitutional institutions, party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi discharged BJP’s assault on Ansari as unfair and unbecoming pot-shots.

Singhvi said that “BJP has the habit of sensationalising and seeing conspiracy lurking everywhere….Now they want to pass on the responsibility as they were never interested in passage of the bill.”

“It is a clear cut case of guilt complex. Assassins are trying to accuse the victim of the murder of democracy,” he added.

The Congress assault came a day after BJP specified that it was miserable with the way Ansari had carried out himself during the last few minutes of the session on Thursday when the bill was being argued but restrained itself due to reverence for the high office. Ansari holds the office of the vice president.

Ansari had deferred the Rajya Sabha examined that there was total standoff and the House could not be run efficiently.

BJP was not satisfied with Ansari’s conclusion and felt the matter could have been dealt with differently. The opposition wanted the House to persist functioning till the bill was passed or permission from the President to expand the session.

Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley said that “I have strong views on that ruling but I will keep it to myself.”
