Kejriwal calls for protests outside PM’s, BJP chief’s residencesAugust 23rd, 2012 - 3:43 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Aug 23 (IANS) Charging the Congress and the BJP with looting the country through the allocation of coal blocks, activist and former Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal Thursday asked the people to protest outside the residences of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and BJP president Nitin Gadkari.
“Congress and BJP have got together to loot Rs. 1.86 lakh crore in coal scam. Let us assemble at Jantar Mantar Aug 26 at 10 a.m. and gherao Prime Minister’s and Nitin Gadkari’s residences,” Kejriwal wrote on micro-blogging site Twitter.
Kejriwal recently threatened to file a public suit in court and conduct a referendum to “expose” the government on the allocation of coal blocks if it did not constitute a team to probe the charges.
Both houses of parliament were disrupted Thursday for the third day as the opposition demanded the resignation of the prime minister over the Comptroller and Auditor General’s report on the allocation of coal blocks.
