New Delhi, Aug 24 (IANS) A heated exchange of words took place between the treasury and opposition benches in the Lok Sabha when Bharatiya Janata Party’s Murli Manohar Joshi accused Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal of asking an MP to switch sides on corruption issue.
Challenging him to bring a privilege motion, Bansal retorted that Joshi, who is chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, was trying to bring the panel issues into the house debate on corruption.
Things cooled down after Speaker Meira Kumar intervened and asked Joshi not to mention PAC matters.
