New Delhi, Aug 1 : Ahead of an all-party meet convened by the government to break the Parliament logjam, CPI(M) today blamed the BJP-led government for disrupting the House, accusing it of trying to escape from accountability behind the veil of conducting a ‘debate for debate’s sake’.

The CPI (M) stuck to its demand for the resignation of Union Minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh Chief Ministers, saying this was necessary for an impartial investigation into the charges against them.

“The opposition correctly maintains that a parliamentary discussion cannot be a substitute for an investigation. These are serious charges that need to be investigated at the highest level.

“Till such an investigation continues, as is the norm for any government servant, the accused demits office in order to ensure strict impartiality. It is precisely this that is being asked of this BJP government,” party General Secretary Sitaram Yechury said. (PTI)
