BJP contemplating privilege motion against Sibal

New Delhi: Seeking to corner the
government, BJP on Friday said it was "seriously" examining the
possibility of bringing a privilege motion against Telecom
Minister Kapil Sibal for announcing a probe into the 2G
spectrum allocation from 2001 at a time when Parliament is in
session.
"Our Lok Sabha colleagues are seriously examining the
possibility (to move a privilege motion against Sibal)...the
motion can be brought in the House of which the minister is a
member," Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley
told reporters here.

Earlier in the day, BJP veteran Murli Manohar Joshi
said that the manner in which Sibal made the announcement "is
highly objectionable and may invite privilege".
"The general practice is not to make any policy
announcement outside the House when Parliament is in session,"
Joshi said.

Sibal had yesterday announced appointment of a
one-man committee of retired Supreme Court Justice Shivaraj V
Patil to probe the alleged irregularities in the allocation of
2G spectrum since 2001, a period involving the NDA regime.
