As per sources, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is expected to face the ire of BJP as it prepares to demand a resignation for he held the coal portfolio at the time the coal blocks were allocated. "The BJP is going to very aggressively pursue the demand raised by the Leaders of Opposition Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha on Friday that the Prime Minister needs to introspect and resign because he was himself the Coal Minister for most of the period the allocation of coal blocks was done," BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said.
As per BJP, the Prime Minister is "morally, politically and personally" responsible for the Rs 1.86 lakh crore estimated loss that has been mentioned in the CAG report. It will be the first time since the report was tabled in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha that the two Houses of Parliament will meet.
