Sharad Yadav angry with BJP, Coalgate divides Opposition

NDA convenor Sharad Yadav angry with the BJP for its flip-flop on Rs 1.86 lakh crore coalgate scam busted by the CAG.

Encouraged by divisions within the Opposition, the UPA and its coal minister Sriprakash Jaiswal have rejected  en-masse canceling  coal blocks.
