NEW DELHI - Ruling Congress Party leader Sonia Gandhi accused the main opposition party on Tuesday of holding India to ransom in a stand-off over coal deals that has paralyzed parliament.

Gandhi's rare public utterance marked a deepening of tensions between Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which has disrupted parliamentary work for more than a week with demands for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to quit over the dispute.
