PAC to soon decide on taking up CAG reports
New Delhi: Parliament's Public Accounts Committee will soon decide on taking up the three CAG reports on coal blocks, Delhi international airport and power projects tabled in Parliament on Friday.
"The time will be decided to take up the reports shortly and future course of action will be decided as per rules," PAC chairman and BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi said here.
He said the committee will seek necessary documents from the various ministries. "...Witnesses who need to be called will be summoned," he said.
PAC scrutinises the CAG reports and gives its report to Parliament.
While refusing to make any immediate comment on the report on coal blocks, he said, "Reports on scams in sea, air and land were now out".
PAC's controversial draft report on 2G scam had strongly indicted former Telecom Minister A Raja and come down heavily on the PMO and the Cabinet Secretariat for not taking "corrective action" while not sparing even the Prime Minister for "some unfortunate omissions".
The draft was rejected by Congress members in the PAC and Speaker Meira Kumar had returned it back to Joshi following the controversy.
