New Delhi, May 11: As Pawan Kumar Bansal and Ashwani Kumar resigned from their ministerial posts, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Friday said it was a delayed step.
"This is a delayed step," said BJP spokesperson Syed Shahnawaz Hussain.
"Had the ministers resigned a few days ago, the time of parliament would not have been wasted," he said.
"The Congress does not take any decision on moral grounds," he added.
The entire second half of the budget session, which lasted April 22 to May 10, was wasted as BJP kept disrupting parliament demanding the ouster of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Bansal, and Law Minister Ashwani Kumar.
While Bansal's nephew was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for allegedly taking a bribe for the appointment of a member of the Railway Board, Ashwani Kumar has come under attack by the Supreme Court for vetting the CBI report on coal blocks allocation.
