Azad remembered about the Railways Minister, Pawan Kumar Bansal, and the then Maharashtra Chief Minister, Ashok Chavan, had resigned after allegations were leveled against them, implying that, it will be better if even BJP leaders do the same. He termed the BJP government as “thick skinned” after it rejected the demand of the Congress party.   

This fight between the leading party and oppositions continued in the parliament sessions. Though PM Modi said that, the parliament sessions should be used productively, oppositions are not in a position to discuss about it. Due to this situation, the sessions in Loksabha are postponed to tomorrow.
