Wikileaks rocks Indian parliament

about alleged payment to some MPs in the trust vote in 2008.

The trust vote took place after the left parties withdrew support to the UPA 1 government over differences on Indo-US Civil Nuclear Deal.

The Lok Sabha was adjourned till 6 pm and the Rajya Sabha for the day. Both the Houses had witnessed two adjournments earlier in the day.

When the Lok Sabha met at 2 pm there was no change in the situation with Opposition raising slogans against the government and the Treasury benches strongly reacting with allegations that Opposition is not interested in running Parliament forcing an adjournment till 6 pm.

The Lok Sabha passed demands for grants for 2011-12 through a voice vote after the opposition staged a walk out when the House assembled at 6 pm. Later the Lok Sabha was also adjourned for the day.

Earlier, making the government’s stand clear in the Rajya Sabha, the Finance Minister Mr. Pranab Mukherjee said that the government can neither confirm nor deny the revelations made in the Wikileaks. He said it is a communication between a diplomatic mission and its sovereign government.

Congress has accused BJP of disrupting the proceedings of Parliament on baseless charges. Talking to reporters in New Delhi, Party Spokesman Abhishek Manu Singhvi said that there is no corroborative evidence in the latest expose by Wikileaks on the cash for Vote scam. He said that BJP is undermining the image of Indian democracy by stalling the Parliament on a source which has been declared as unreliable by several governments across the globe.

Contesting the government’s argument, the leader of the Opposition in the House Mr. Arun Jaitley alleged that the incident took place outside Parliament and described it as a commission of an offence in India.

CPIM leader Sitaram Yechury said that the Committee appointed to look into the cash for vote scam has recommended proper criminal investigation in the case.

In the Lok Sabha, Gurudas Dasgupta of CPI raised the issue urging the Prime Minister to make a statement in the House.

The NDA said that the government has no moral right to continue and it should quit. Addressing a joint press conference with other NDA allies including Sharad Yadav of JD(U) and Ananat Gite of Shiv Sena, senior BJP leader L K Advani said the latest expose by Wikileaks has maligned globally acclaimed Indian democracy. He said that the Prime Minister should make a statement in the house to clear the government’s stand on the issue. He added that the recent expose vindicates his party’s stand on the issue
