Lucknow: Alleging that the Congress-led UPA government was in a "hurry" over the bill on quota in promotion for SCs and STs, BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain on Thursday said that it was brought in parliament to divert the attention of people from coal block allocation issue.

"The UPA government is in a hurry over Bill on quota in promotion. It has been brought in the Parliament to divert attention of people from coal block allocation issue," Hussain said.

"We want first discussion on corruption in coal block allocation before other issues," he said, adding that if government showed positive response on Thursday, the parliament could run properly on Friday, the last day of the Monsoon session.
