Gurudas Dasgupta calls JPC report a farce

Kolkata: CPI MP Gurudas Dasgupta on Saturday claimed that the JPC report on 2G spectrum allocation which was `undemocratically` released on Thursday was `a farce and a fraud committed on democracy in the country`.

"The way the JPC report was handed over on Thursday defies all democratic norms and demeaned the prestige of the Parliament before the nation," Gurudas told a press conference here.

Gurudas said that he would talk to all the other parties except Congress to reject the report in Parliament, adding that a parallel report would be presented by him.

"I will talk to both BJP and Trinamool chief Mamata Banerjee," he said.

The MP, also a member of the parliamentary panel, said JPC chairman and Congress MP PC Chacko had worked more as a Congressman and not as an impartial individual to come out with the truth, adding that the report was not released after reaching a consensus by the panel members.
The report gave a clean chit to the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and then finance minister P Chidambaram and said both were misled by then telecom minister A Raja in the 2G spectrum allocation while mentioning that the CAG figure of a notional loss of Rs 1.72 lakh crore was false.

The JPC was formed by the government in 2010 after a series of Parliament adjournments to probe the alleged corruption in the allocation of 2G spectrum in 2008 at 2001 prices which caused to huge loss to the national exchequer.
