Congress leader in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Monday fired salvos at Bharatiya Janata Party-led Central government. Speaking in the Lok Sabha, West Bengal Congress MP Chowdhury raised questions on BJP’s inaction in 2G and Coal Scam Cases.

“Did you manage to catch anybody in 2G & coal allocation scam? Did you manage to send Sonia Gandhi ji & Rahul Gandhi ji behind the bars? You came to power by calling them thieves, then how are they sitting in the parliament?”, said Leader of Congress Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury.

The 2G scam happened during the year 2007-2008 when Congress-led United Progressive Alliance-I (UPA-I) was in power. It was related to the allocation of 2G spectrum license which caused a loss of Rs 1.76 lakh crore to the public exchequer, according to a report by the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG).

While the Coal Allocation Scam was the irregularities in coal allocation from 1993 to 2010 and came to public domain was Congress-led UPA-2 was in power.

The Indian National Congress on June 18 picked West Bengal MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury as its Leader in the lower House, Lok Sabha. Reportedly, it came after Rahul Gandhi refused to take charge of the post.

Chowdhury replaced Congress Stalwart Mallikarjun Kharge who was the Leader of the party in the 16th Lok Sabha. In the recently held national polls, Mallikarjun Kharge fails to score and lost from Gulbarga Lok Sabha Seat in Karnataka.

A former President of the West Bengal Congress, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, has the reputation of having a loud voice in the House. He has the responsibility to lead the Congress in the Lok Sabha where it has 52 MPs.

In the recently held national polls, Congress won 52 Lok Sabha Seats which is 2 short of 10% strength, to stake a claim for Leader of Opposition.
