New Delhi: CPI(M) today said it will not relent on its demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the 2G spectrum scam and wondered why the government was objecting to it.

"On 2G spectrum, we are very clear that there is no other way out now particularly after the Supreme Court coming into the picture and trying to draw in the Prime Minister," CPI(M) Politburo member Sitaram Yechury told reporters as the party central committee met here.

He said there is no way except for JPC probe.

"We hope the government will relent. We don't understand why they are objecting to it. They are saying that why don't you discuss it in the Public Accounts Committee (PAC).

"PAC by definition is a committee of accounts. What we want to investigate is how did these particular accounts come into being. What are the decisions behind that?" he added.
