New Delhi: BJP on Wednesday demanded an immediate
announcement by the government that it is willing to form a
JPC to probe the 2G spectrum scam, saying such a move would
ensure smooth functioning of Parliament in the Budget session.
"The government can call the opposition parties and
inform them that they are for a JPC...it is the biggest remedy
to ensure a smooth functioning of Parliament", BJP
spokesperson Syed Shahnawaz Hussain told reporters in Delhi.
Responding to a volley of questions on whether BJP
would stall the proceedings of Parliament if the announcement
was not made ahead of the Budget session beginning February
21, he said the party will "wait till Parliament begins".
When asked if government can announce formation of
Joint Parliamentary Committee outside Parliament, he said the
opposition can at least be informed that government was ready
"They can host lunches and dinners for opposition
leaders. But they should call them to inform about their
willingness...While BJP wants that Parliament should discharge
its responsibilities, the government must also facilitate the
same by constituting JPC," he said.
