Congress hopes Joshi will maintain dignity of PAC

Congress expressed the hope that the PAC Chairman will maintain the dignity of the Constitutional committee in the interest of democracy.

New Delhi: With Murli Manohar Joshi
toeing the BJP line on the demand for JPC in the 2G scam,
Congress on Friday expressed the hope that the PAC Chairman will
maintain the dignity of the Constitutional committee in the
interest of democracy.

"We do hope that Dr Joshi and all concerned will try to
maintain the dignity of the Constitutional committee like PAC
in the interest of democratic values", party spokesman Shakeel
Ahamed said.

His comment came a day after Joshi`s statement that "as
a member of BJP" he is in favour of a JPC into the 2G spectrum
issue, insisting at the same time that the PAC he heads has
"vast powers" in bringing greater accountability in public
spending.

The Congress had yesterday said that what Joshi has
said was nothing new. "As a member of the BJP, he has on
earlier occasions asked for the formation of the JPC. He is
examining the CAG report as head of a Parliamentary
Committee".
