Congress cries foul over denial to raise Ishrat case

New Delhi

“Gross injustice was done to the entire opposition Parties” which were disallowed from participating in the discussion on Ishrat Jahan issue, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge said amid protests from party members. He said for want of the opposition’s participation, the discussion was “biased” and saw “baseless” allegations against the UPA and its leadership and projected a “one-sided story”.  
Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajiv Pratap Rudy, however, dismissed the Congress charge. He said after a decision was taken in the business advisory committee that the issue would be taken up, it was for Congress members to give notice for participation, which was not done by them.     Speaker Sumitra Mahajan agreed with him.
