Govt may adjourn Parliament sine die ahead of Dec 13

New Delhi: With the government-opposition
stand off on JPC into 2G spectrum scam showing no signs of
ending, the winter session of Parliament may be adjourned sine
die ahead of the scheduled end on December 13, even as early
early next week.

The government is toying with two options: one of
adjourning the session soon after the passage of crucial
financial bills, a process that is expected to be completed by
Friday in both the Houses, sources told PTI.
Alternatively, the session could extended for a few
more days and adjourned sine die next week.

After wasting 14 consecutive days, Parliament
transacted some substantive business today as Lok Sabha passed
the supplementary demands for 2010-11 amid pandemonium created
by the Opposition over its demand for JPC probe into the 2G
spectrum scam.

Undeterred by the opposition uproar, the government pushed
the crucial financial bill through in the Lower House by a
voice vote without debate before it was adjourned for the day
in view of unruly scenes.
At an all-party meeting called by Lok Sabha Speaker Meira
Kumar yesterday, the Opposition had made it clear that it will
not allow Parliament to function till JPC into 2G spectrum
allocation is set up but the government said the demand was
"unacceptable".

The Opposition parties also emphasised that it will not
be satisfied by anything less than JPC, rejecting government`s
proposal for Supreme Court-monitored CBI probe into 2G scam.
