Mr Jaiswal is desperate to defend Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who has much to answer on the coal block allocation scam. Mr Parakh is right when he says that if he is involved in a conspiracy with Hindalco chief Kumar Mangalam Birla, as an FIR filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation alleges, Prime Minister Singh, who was then the Coal Minister, too cannot escape responsibility and accountability.
