The logjam in Parliament will continue unless "corruption issues" involving BJP ministers are resolved, senior Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia said on Sunday, setting the tone for the all-party meeting convened on Monday by the ruling NDA to break the impasse. Scindia said that Congress will not "budge" on its demand for resignation of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan over Vyapam scam as it has dented the image of Madhya Pradesh at the international level.

The saffron party's acts and deeds on corruption are way apart," Scindia, chief whip of Congress in Lok Sabha, told PTI here. He said Congress will stick to its demand for Chouhan's resignation "in the interest of a fair probe". "The current logjam will continue in Parliament until the issues of corruption are resolved.

No death penalty even for terrorists, says Shashi Tharoor 2.8.2015 DNA: Money
Unfazed by criticism, former union minister Shashi Tharoor on Sunday opposed death penalty even for terrorists saying it was an "obsolete practice" and they should instead be put behind bars for the rest of their lives without parole. "Terrorists should be put behind bars throughout their life without parole. In earlier days, there was a belief that if a person murders someone, he should be killed. Why do we need to follow the old obsolete practice...," the Congress MP said. "When we implement capital punishment, we are actually acting like them. They are the murderers and the state should not act like them," the Congress MP told reporters here on the sidelines of a function, organised by 'Tree Walk', an environmental organisation.  On the recent controversy over his tweet on the execution of Mumbai terror attack convict Yakub Memon , he said: "I have not said a word on Memon case.
