BJP sticks to JPC demand on 2G scam

Sticking to its demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) to probe the 2G spectrum scam, BJP on Monday said arrest of former Union telecom minister A Raja was not enough as the party wanted his godfathers to be exposed.



Jamshedpur (Jharkhand): Sticking to its
demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) to probe the
2G spectrum scam, BJP on Monday said arrest of former Union
telecom minister A Raja was not enough as the party wanted his
godfathers to be exposed.

National general secretary of BJP, Dharmendra Pradhan,
ex-MP, said the action initiated against Raja was too little
and too late but BJP wanted the government to initiate
concrete action to unearth Raja’s godfathers involved in the
scam.

"Why Congress is so fearful about JPC?" he said.

Pradhan, who was in Steel City here after he
campaigned for Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun Munda yesterday
for Kharswan Assembly by-poll staled for February 10, claimed
that the opposition rallied around BJP, which has effectively
raked up issues such 2G, CWG scam, price rise, black money in
and outside the floor of the House.

Asked whether Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa
issue had any adverse impact on the image of the party
fighting corruption, Pradhan, who is also the in-charge of
party affairs in Karnataka, said it was not at all an issue in
the state as people were very much aware that the opposition
were indulged in "misinformation campaign" against
Yeddyurappa.

The Karnataka government has already set up a
commission to probe the allegation made by the opposition
party as well as the denotification of land done by the state
governments during last 15 years, he said.
