2G scam: BJP rejects UPA’s special Parliament session offer

BJP leaders Sushma Swaraj and L.K. Advani at the party's National Office Bearers meeting in New Delhi on Thursday.  

Rejecting UPA’s offer of a special Parliament session to debate the 2G scam, BJP on Thursday stuck to its demand of a Joint Parliament Committee probe into the issue, saying if the Congress has nothing to hide why is it shying away from JPC.

“If Congress has nothing to hide why it is shying away from a JPC inquiry. They should form a JPC and probe would bring out everything,” BJP spokesperson Ravi Shanker Prasad told reporters ahead of the commencement of the party’s National Office Bearers meet here.

Echoing his sentiments, Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj said, “We do not want any debate. We want an inquiry. The government should form a JPC to probe it (2G scam).”

Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee had on Thursday proposed to convene a special session of the Parliament to discuss whether to set up a JPC to probe the 2G scam.

“Why PM is not ready to face a JPC, even as he offered to appear before the Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee on the 2G spectrum allocation?” Mr. Prasad asked.

BJP have had enough of debates and discussions with the government, and now we expect some action and will not settle for anything less than a JPC probe, he said.
