Raising the issue during Question Hour in Rajya Sabha, BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu said that the government has admitted before Supreme Court that a large number of files related to coal block allocation are missing.
He said that he has given a notice for suspension of Question Hour as the Supreme Court on Thursday come down heavily on the government over the missing files issue. "Nothing is more important. Prime Minister should come and reply," Naidu said.
Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajeev Shukla said that the government has never avoided a discussion on the issue and Prime Minister was present in the House for an hour, when the issue surfaced previously.
Leader of the Opposition Arun Jaitely said that since the discussions during the previous occasion was inconclusive, the issue has not been abandoned. "Prime Minister can be requested to come back and answer," he said and asked whether Manmohan Singh will reply.
