FONT SIZE

New Delhi, Aug 23: Asserting that it has nothing to hide, the government today said it was prepared to discuss threadbare the CAG report on coal block allocation in Parliament and reply to the issues raised by the opposition.  



“The government is already prepared to discuss anything they want. The Prime Minister has already said that. We are prepared to discuss the issues threadbare,” Home Minister Shushilkumar Shinde told reporters outside Parliament House.  

Law Minister Salman Khurshid expressed the hope that the opposition will join in ensuring proper functioning of Parliament.

“We want to give a reply to both the opposition and the country. We have nothing to hide,” Khurshid said.  

Parliament has been in turmoil since Tuesday with BJP members demanding resignation of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh over CAG’s findings on the issue of extension of undue benefits to the tune of Rs 1.86 lakh crore in allocation of coal blocks.
