New Delhi: Asserting that it has nothing to hide, the Indian government on Thursday said it was prepared to discuss threadbare the CAG (Comptroller and Auditor General of India) report on coal block allocation in the Parliament and reply to the issues raised by the opposition, reports PTI.
“The government is already prepared to discuss anything they want. The prime minister has already said that. We are prepared to discuss the issues threadbare,” home minister Shushil Kumar Shinde told reporters outside the Parliament House.
Law minister Salman Khurshid expressed the hope that the opposition will join in ensuring proper functioning of Parliament.
“We want to give a reply to both the opposition and the country. We have nothing to hide,” Mr Khurshid said.
