Govt will have to give ATR on PAC report: Joshi
PAC Chairman Murli Manohar Joshi said the government will have to submit an action taken report.
Kolkata: PAC Chairman Murli Manohar Joshi on Saturday said the government will have to submit an action taken report on the draft report prepared by him on the 2G scam.
"The future of the report is bright. The report is now
with the Speaker. It is taken to be presented before the
House. The Government will have to give a action taken report
on it," Joshi told a press conference here.
Noting that it was entirely wrong to say that his
report was rejected by the majority of the members, he said
after the PAC meeting was adjourned some members had raised
dissent once they came to know that Prime Minister Manmohan
Singh, the then Finance Minister P Chidambaram and some
officers were named in the report.
"Such dissent is invalid as it was raised after the
meeting was adjourned. Besides, the report has no note of
dissent. What they have done is a tamasha (joke)," he said.
Referring to the `election` of Saifuddin Soz to chair
the meeting which `rejected` the report, Joshi said, "No
Rajya Sabha member can chair the PAC."
On the Congress demand for removal of Yashwant Sinha
from the PAC, Joshi said, "He is not a member of the new
committee. He was a member of the old PAC."
