Swaraj satisfied with PMs statement
New Delhi: The BJP on Friday spoke in different voices over owning of responsibility by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on the CVC issue with Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj saying the matter should rest now while her party said he should respond in Parliament.
"I appreciate the statement of the Prime Minister owning responsibility for the appointment of CVC which has been quashed by Supreme Court. I think this is enough. Let matters rest at this and we move forward," Swaraj said on Twitter.
The Prime Minister, who is on a visit to Jammu, said he accepts his responsibility in the appointment of Thomas, which was quashed by the Supreme Court yesterday.
"I respect the judgement of the Supreme Court…. It is necessary to ensure that such things don`t happen again….
This is not a question that relates to coalition compulsions," Singh said.
Though Swaraj was in a mood to end the matter, her party`s chief spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad expressed different sentiments, saying this was not enough.
"We will wait for the Prime Minister`s structured response in Parliament on the issue. Just a casual comment on owning responsibility is not enough. There should also be determination of this responsibility," Prasad said.
