As Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal quit his post, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday said had the step been taken earlier, the budget session of parliament would not have been wasted.

"Had the ministers resigned a few days ago, the time of parliament would not have been wasted," BJP spokesperson Sayed Shahnawaz Hussain said.

"The Congress did not want to face the truth," he said.

The entire second half of the budget session, which lasted from April 22 to May 10, was wasted as the opposition BJP kept disrupting parliament demanding the ouster of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Pawan Bansal, and Law Minister Ashwani Kumar.

While Mr Bansal's nephew was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for allegedly taking a bribe for the appointment of a member of the Railway Board, Ashwani Kumar has come under attack by the Supreme Court for vetting the CBI report on coal blocks allocation.
