Ahmedabad: Union Law and Justice Minister
Verrappa Moily on Saturday said that by refusing the offer of Joint
Parliamentary session to discuss 2G spectrum scam, the NDA has
shown that it does not "believe in principals of democracy".

"We are dealing effectively with corruption and we
have not tried to hide anything," Moily said in reply to a
question on scams like 2G spectrum impacting credibility of
the Congress-lead UPA government.

"We have taken concrete actions to tame corruption and
various agencies are investigating the charges," Moily said
referring to the CBI probe in the 2G spectrum scam.

"The Prime Minister has also declared that he is ready
to face PAC (Parliamentary Accounts Committee)," he further
said after a meeting with party`s legal cell workers from
Gujarat at Congress headquarters here.

"We have also offered a joint session of Parliament
for discussion on the issue. But it seems that the opposition
is not interested in discussion as the CBI has started
investigations from 2001(when NDA was in power)," he said.

"By refusing discussion on the issue the BJP has shown
that they do not believe in principals of democracy," Moily
said.

On a question of shortage of judges in Gujarat High
Court, Moily said that the process of appointment of judges in
high court was on and new appointments will be made soon.
