Venkaiah Naidu said that the ruling party has become silent on discussing allegations made by Vanzara because it felt a discussion on Khemka would be embarassing for it, a charge which was dismissed by Congress.
    
"The practice in Parliament has been not to discuss state-related matters. If they want to have a change of it, let there be a consensus on this. Let us discuss every state issue including the issue of Haryana small farmer. That is the stand taken by BJP," Naidu told reporters outside Parliament.
    
He said that some people in Parliament just want to raise issues about states when it suits them and oppose discussing state issues when it doesn't.
    
"That's why we have taken this stand, if you want to discuss IPS Vanzara issue, then discuss IAS Ashok Khemka issue of Haryana as well and then move forward. For that, immediately, the other side became silent because they know if the debate goes on, it'll become embarassing for the ruling party," Naidu said.
    
Dismissing the charge, Congress leader Renuka Chowdhary said that there is no parallel between the two issues.
    
"It is quite a bizarre comparison. We are talking about a police officer who has written categorically against a Chief Minister. You are willing to make Robert Vadra a Chief Minister, so be it, we don't mind," she said.
    
She also said that the issue related to Vanzara's letter has been raised several times on Wednesday and added that it is ridiculous to compare the two issues.
