2G logjam: Parliament adjourned yet again

The deadlock in Parliament over the 2G scam continued for the 19th straight day on Wednesday, with the opposition remaining adamant on their demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe.



New Delhi: The deadlock in Parliament over the 2G scam continued for the 19th straight day on Wednesday, with the opposition remaining adamant on their demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) today raided the residences of former Telecom Minister A Raja in Delhi, along with his homes in Tamil Nadu, in connection with the scam. But an unrelenting Opposition said that wasn`t enough and continued to insist for a JPC probe.

Immediately after Speaker Meira Kumar concluded the reference to the Varanasi bomb explosion and deaths due to heavy rains in Tamil Nadu, Opposition members trooped into the well of the house demanding a JPC probe in the alleged scam.

Congress members countered the Opposition onslaught waving placards ``Do not denigrate PAC``, a reference to the ongoing examination of the 2G spectrum allocation report of the Comptroller and Auditor General by the Public Accounts Committee.

As the din continued, Speaker Meira Kumar adjourned the house till Thursday.

The Rajya Sabha also witnessed similar scenes, forcing Chairman Hamid Ansari adjourn the house till Thursday

The Winter Session of Parliament began on November 9 and has witnessed repeated adjournments over the opposition``s insistence for a JPC probe into the 2G scam, even after A. Raja resigned as Communications and IT Minister. (ANI)
