CBI should probe coal allocation money trail: BJP

New Delhi, June 11 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Tuesday said the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) should go after the money trail in coal-blocks allocations to know about the people who benefited from irregularities.

“We welcome the case registered against former minister of state for coal Dasari Narayan Rao and industrialist Naveen Jindal but this is too little and too late,” BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar told reporters here.

“On our complaint, the CBI started probing the case 15 months ago and now they will get nothing out of raids. The CBI should go for money trail as it is a monumental corruption of Rs.50 lakh crore,” he said.

“The CBI should investigate who paid whom, who received how much and where the cash is. There has been massive cover up. We have seen how the (central) government tried to change the whole report to save the prime minister as he was the coal minister then,” he said.

The issue cost Ashwini Kumar the law minister’s job when it became known that he had vetted the CBI report before it was submitted to the Supreme Court.
