SDPI demands cancellation of all coal block allocations

By Muslim Mirror News,

SDPINew Delhi, April 25: The Social Democratic Party of India, (SDPI), has demanded cancellation of all coal block allocations and a thorough inquiry all over again to bring the culprits to books and to put the records straight in the Coal Gate scam.

SDPI national president A. Sayeed in a statement on Thursday charged the Congress-led UPA Government of destroying and subverting every institution in the country. “It is trying to subvert institutions to suppress the truth. The coal block allocations have come under scanner as CBI, CAG and Parliamentary Standing Committee, (PSC), reports have all pointed needle of suspicion and strongly indicted the Congress-led UPA Government for serious irregularities in the matter,” he said.

Sayeed pointed out that the Parliamentary Standing Committee in its reports said the coal blocks were allocated in “most non-transparent” manner and natural resources were distributed to “few fortunate” through “abuse of power” by the then ruling dispensation.

Calling coal mine allocations done in 1993 to 2010 as “unauthorised and illegal”, the panel has suggested scrapping of mines that have not started production. Noting that “the Government cannot give largesse on its arbitrary discretion or its sweet will,” report said the allocations were illegal and amounted to huge losses to the state exchequer, the statement stated.

He lamented the Union Law and Justice Minister Ashwani Kumar’s alleged role in vetting the CBI affidavit for the Supreme Court on the coal scam investigation is highly deplorable act. He wondered since when does CBI needed an English tutor like the law minister to correct the English of its affidavit. He alleged the PMO and the law minister have blatantly interfered in the functioning of the CBI while investigating the coal block allocation scam. The Prime Minister cannot also absolve himself of the wrong doings in the allocation of coal blocks, he added.

Sayeed reiterated his demand of cancelling of all coal block allocations and re-tendering it for fair play to stem the loss to the state exchequer.
