BJP President Rajnath Singh said the UPA government had no moral authority to continue in office and hence Prime Minister Dr Manmohan should resign.
Railway Minister Lalu Yadav alleged that this was engineered by BJP leader L K Advani and claimed that all allegations against the UPA government were fake. "Yeh sab farzi hai," he said as he walked into Parliament House only to return with Pappu Yadav who alleged that he had been approached by a senior BJP leader to vote against the UPA government.
Speaker Somnath Chatterjee revealed to members that Deputy Speaker Charanjit Singh Atwal wanted to resign because of what happened in the House. "It is a black day in the history of the House. I have got the CD. I will take a decision on the matter and nobody found to be involved will be spared," the Speaker told Parliament.
