Have submitted PAC’s 2G report to speaker: Joshi


New Delhi: Public Accounts Committee (PAC) chairperson Murli Manohar Joshi Saturday said he has submitted the committee’s draft report on the 2G spectrum allocation to the Lok Sabha speaker’s office.

Joshi, a BJP leader, told newspersons he submitted the report to Speaker Meira Kumar’s office in the afternoon. The term of Joshi-headed panel expires Saturday.

The 270-page draft report on the controversial 2G spectrum allotment was rejected by 11 of 21 members of the panel belonging to the Congress, the DMK, Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP).

The Congress and its allies have rubbished the leaked draft report that pulled up Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for his “indirect” role in the spectrum allocation scandal. It also criticised P. Chidambaram, who was finance minister when then IT and communications minister A. Raja sold scarce radio waves to private telecom firms allegedly at throwaway prices, causing the nation colossal loss of revenue.
