"But we want the Opposition to cooperate with the
government and ensure that Parliament functions," he said
ahead of the Budget session, which begins Monday.
Bansal was here to attend the diamond jubilee celebration
of Central Drug Research Institute (CDRI).
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had yesterday given the
clearest signal that the government was ready for a JPC probe
in the 2G scam, when he said that he was not afraid of
appearing before the panel.
"Full efforts are being undertaken to see that some way
will be found (to ensure that Parliament functions). I hope it
will happen," Singh had said when he was asked by television
editors at an interaction whether the government would agree
to the JPC.
The winter session of Parliament was a washout with the
Opposition unrelenting in its demand for a JPC to probe the 2G
scam and alleged bungling in Commonwealth Games projects and
Adarsh housing society.
