New Delhi, Sept 2 (ANI): Terming the BJP as an outfit of goons and jokers, senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar has said that the prolonged stance of the BJP demanding resignation of the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh over Coalgate scam is the most irrational action. The Coalgate has paralysed parliament after the countrys apex audit body, Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) said that the under priced sales of coalfields would have cost the national exchequer huge loss. The BJP is demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh since he headed the Coal Ministry between 2006 and 2009, when many of the sales occurred.
