With A. Raja dragging Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and P. Chidambaram in the 2G case, BJP leader Yashwant Sinha has asked Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) Chairman P.C. Chacko to summon the Home Minister as a witness before the committee.

Several other members of the Joint Parliamentary Committee have written to Mr. Chacko with requests to make various former Finance Ministers as witness before the panel looking into the 2G scam.

Besides former Finance Ministers, at least four members have suggested that RBI Governor and former Finance Secretary D. Subbarao be made a witness.

Mr. Sinha wrote to Mr. Chacko on Wednesday requesting him to include the name of Mr. Chidambaram as a witness.

“I am collecting all the letters and the Committee will take a decision by consensus on whom to be called...the politicians which include former Telecom Ministers and former Finance Ministers will appear before the Committee at the end,” Mr. Chacko told reporters after the JPC meeting.
