New Delhi: BJP on Friday stepped up its pressure on the government by demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh after the resignations of Railway Minister and Law Minister.
"Now, there is no logic in the Prime Minister's continuance. After the exit of Ashwani Kumar, who was protecting the Prime Minister, now the consequences should follow. The consequence is that the Prime Minister must resign now," BJP leader LK Advani said.
Describing the resignation of Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal and Law Minister Ashwani Kumar as a step taken ‘too late’, BJP charged the government with ‘wasting’ precious time of Parliament by not agreeing to its demand earlier and allowing it to function.
The opposition party hopes the probe into the railway bribery scam will now go in the right direction and truth will come out once CBI probes freely.
"The resignation of the two Ministers shows that our demand for their resignation was justified and the government was unnecessarily adamant. If they had accepted our demand for their resignations earlier, the Parliament could have worked," Leader of Opposition Sushma Swaraj said on Twitter.
