New Delhi: Slamming the Centre for refusing to discuss WikiLeaks’ expose on the cash-for-votes scam, Arun Jaitley, leader of opposition in the Rajya Sabha (upper house), today told NDTV that the Manmohan Singh-led UPA government had lost the confidence to govern the nation.
Sounding out a warning to the government, he said, “Echoes of what is happening inside Parliament will soon be heard outside.”
His remarks came after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today staged a walkout from the Lok Sabha after the Chair disallowed a discussion on WikiLeaks ahead of the discussion on the Finance Bill.
“I do not think heaven is going to fall if we take up the Finance Bill first. I assure you that we will have the discussion after the Finance Bill is passed. I am not making it a prestige issue,” Leader of the Lok Sabha Pranab Mukherjee had said.
