New Delhi: Amid the raging row over the
controversial 2G note, three ministers on Wednesday night met Finance
Minister Pranab Mukherjee at his residence to find a way out
to end the political storm.

P K Bansal, V Narayanaswamy and Rajiv Shukla met
Mukherjee after 11 pm when the Finance Minister drove in
from his North Block office.
There was no official word on what transpired at the
meeting.

The meeting took place hours after Mukherjee wrote to
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh setting out in detail the events
surrounding the controversial allocation of spectrum.
On his part, the Finance Minister has refrained from
speaking on the issue, saying he would first hold discussions
with the Prime Minister.

"The correspondence between the Prime Minister and
Ministers, I consider, are confidential," he curtly told
reporters trying to get his comment on the 2G note.

The PM-Mukherjee meeting can possibly take place only
tomorrow evening or Friday since the Prime Minister is flying
out to Sikkim in the morning to visit quake-hit areas.

The Finance Minister too is leaving for Kolkata
in the next few days for the Durga Puja festivities and will
be away for nearly a week.
