New Delhi: With Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha seeing turmoil over the talk including Union Minister Kiren Rijiju, his cabinet co-worker M Venkaiah Naidu on Wed rubbished the accusations levelled against him, saying it was portion of Congress’ “spit and run” techniques.
He said the Power Ministry has already given a explanation and The legislature does not even know that the work was approved when it was in power at the Center.
“Let them (Opposition) increase the problem. Let there be a conversation. Clarification has already been given by the Power Ministry… The cash… anything was given during the first The legislature govt. They do not even know that. Then who are they blaming (I) cannot comprehend,” Naidu informed journalists on the side lines of “Asia Hawaiian Ministerial Meeting on Real estate and City Development” here.
He said Rijiju only “forwarded” the demand of “some those who did not get the money” for a hydro venture. “How is it a scam? What is the particular aspect (of Rijiju)… It is the wrong allegation,” he said.
“This is the techniques of the Opposition, especially that of The legislature. Throw and run. That is what they are trying to do with Rijiju also. Let the reality come out. Everything will become obvious,” the Reverend said.
Lok Sabha was adjourned for the day due to fuss in the Home, while Rajya Sabha was adjourned until 1400 time following Resistance turmoil over debate including Rijiju, who is charged of suggesting launch of organized expenses to a specialist, his relative, for a 600-MW power venture in Arunachal Pradesh.
Congress last night required the sacking of Rijiju claiming his “involvement” in the “Rs 450-crore Arunachal power scam” and said the Primary Minister’s “tall claims” of providing visibility have “fallen flat”.
