BJP seeks Prez intervention in coal scam

In a bid to keep the coalgate scam alive, the BJP on Wednesday sought President Pranab Mukherje’s intervention to refrain the prime minister, his colleagues in the UPA government and Congress party from questioning the credibility of CAG which exposed irregularities in coal block allotments.

Top BJP leaders L K Advani, Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley and Murli Manohar Joshi met Pranab Mukherjee at the President Estate to express “deep anguish and profound concern” over Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and the Congress questioning the CAG performance audit report on coal scam pegging notional loss of Rs 1.86 lakh crore.  They submitted a memorandum to Mukherjee on the issue.
