2G scam: Pranab hopes to get solution in Budget session

Mukherjee said he would have discussions with various political parties and recalled that Lok Sabha Speaker Miera Kumar had already held discussions with the Opposition in this regard.



Chennai: Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee on Sunday hoped a solution would be found in the coming Budget session of the Parliament to break the impasse over the Opposition demand for a JPC probe into the 2G spectrum
allocation scam to ensure smooth proceedings in the House.

"I do hope it will be possible for us to find a solution so that transaction during the Budget session can be held smoothly," he told reporters here.

Mukherjee said he would have discussions with various political parties and recalled that Lok Sabha Speaker Miera Kumar had already held discussions with the Opposition in this regard.
BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar had yesterday said there would be no let up in its demand for JPC probe during the Budget session of Parliament, beginning next month.

The month-long winter session was a complete washout as NDA and other Opposition parties said nothing less than a JPC probe into the scam would do but the government stood firmly against it.
