Under unrelenting attack from the BJP over coal blocks allocation, the Congress Tuesday announced it will "hit the streets" to expose the double-speak of the opposition over sanctity of constitutional institutions.
After a meeting of the Congress Parliamentary Party here under the chairmanship of Sonia Gandhi, spokesperson Manish Tewari told reporters here that lakhs of party workers would "hit the streets" to expose the BJP "shedding crocodile tears" over the sanctity of constitutional bodies.
Tewari's remarks come in the wake of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders targeting Prime Minister Manmohan Singh over his attacks on the Comptroller and Auditor General's report on coal blocks allocation in a statement made in parliament Monday.
"The BJP is in the habit of shedding crocodile tears about the sanctity of constitutional institutions. Is parliament not a constitutional institution and their stalling it -- will it not undermine democracy?" Tewari asked the opposition party.
"Under the directions of party chief Sonia Gandhi, lakhs of Congress workers will hit the streets to expose the BJP," he said.
