New Delhi: The government is struggling to find a solution to end a parliamentary deadlock, which has prevented Bills from being passed, Union finance minister Pranab Mukherjee said on Thursday.
“We have not been able to find a solution. I don’t know how to resolve this impasse. We’re trying, let’s see,” Mukherjee, the government’s top trouble shooter, told reporters.
A united opposition led by BJP and supported by AIADMK, TDP, SP, JD (U) and Shiv Sena remained adamant on the demand for a parliamentary probe into irregularities in spectrum allocation as pointed out in the CAG report placed in both Houses.
The CAG indicted former telecom minister A Raja of DMK stating that he ignored the advice of the Prime Minister, finance minister and the law minister on the allocation of frequency for mobile telephones causing a huge loss of Rs 1.76 trillion.
Parliament has been disrupted almost every day since its winter session began on 9 November.
