New Delhi: Parliament`s re-constituted
Public Accounts Committee (PAC) witnessed some stormy scenes
at its first meeting on Monday with Congress members seeking to
corner Chairman Murli Manohar Joshi on the 2G scam issue and
the NDA members counselling restraint.

As soon as the meeting began, Congress members Jayanthi
Natarajan and Girija Vyas wanted Joshi to clarify on the
Committee`s `report` on the 2G spectrum scam issue and wanted
to know the status of the "so called report".

At this point Anandrao Adsul (Shiv Sena), Naresh Gujral
(JD-U) and Prakash Javadekar (BJP) contended that raising
issues related to the 2G matter would only lead to bad blood
and do no good to the Committee.
"Let bygones be bygones," was their refrain.

K Sudhakaran (Cong) said he had given a dissent note on
the 2G scam matter and sought to know what was done with it.

Joshi told the Committee that the he had submitted to
the 2G scam report to Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar along with
the dissent note of Sudhakaran.

B Mahtab (BJD) asked the members to make a new beginning
and making allegations and countering the same would not help
in the functioning of the Committee.

The chair also asked members to refrain from indulging
in party politics in the Committee meetings.
