This refers to the rejection of the Public Accounts Committee's draft report on the 2G scam by a majority of the MPs on the panel, and Chairman Murli Manohar Joshi's walkout from the meeting. One wonders why the Congress pressed for a vote on the report.
The PAC did its job and was about to submit its report. What made the Congress, the DMK, the SP and the BSP say the report was partial? And what was wrong in some portions of the report being leaked to the media? The contents would have been known anyway after its submission.
The Congress-DMK opposition to the PAC report on the 2G spectrum allocation has exposed their attitude to issues of honesty and transparency.
The UPA government wasted an entire session of Parliament by refusing to give in to the Opposition's demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee probe into the issue — saying a PAC had already been constituted — and the Prime Minister even offered to appear before the PAC. What happened to the Congress' commitment?
Jai Prakash Gupta,
The leaked portion of the report slammed former Telecom Minister and made some references to the Prime Minister and his office for some lapses.
That seems to have made the Congress, the DMK and their allies push for the report's rejection.
It is heartening to note that the PAC's draft report did not absolve the PMO of its role in the 2G issue. The Prime Minister, though honest to the core, is answerable for his failure to act when he was required to act.
J. Eden Alexander,
The leakage of the PAC report ahead of its meeting on Thursday and the mud-slinging among members of the Committee have yet again proved that the average politician is least bothered about the nation or the anguish and resentment of the aam aadmi. It is clear that our leaders have not learnt any lesson from the Jantar Mantar protests and will do nothing to regain the trust of the aam aadmi.
