New Delhi, Aug 01: A day after the Parliament gave its approval to the Office of Profit (OoP) bill, the BJP on Tuesday said it would challenge the bill in the court.
   "The BJP will challenge the Bill in a competent court of law," BJP's legal cell convenor Satyapal Jain told reporters in Chandigarh. ...
   ... Describing the passage of Bill despite observations made by the President, Jain alleged that UPA government had "conveniently side tracked the president."
   The action of the government amount to putting seal of Parliament on "loots of some MPs," he said adding that the BJP was of the firm opinion that the MPs and MLAs should not be allowed to hold any office of profit.
