JPC report will be waste if Raja not allowed to depose: DMK
New Delhi: Sticking to its demand that A Raja be allowed to depose before the JPC on 2G, the DMK on Wednesday said the panel`s report will be a "waste" if he does not get an opportunity to give an explanation on the allegations.
Reacting to the draft JPC report which gives a clean chit to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on 2G spectrum allocation saying that he was "misled" by the then telecom minister Raja, the DMK termed it as a "false accusation" against its leader.
"Without calling him (Raja), it is a false accusation... which has no meaning," party MP T K S Elangovan said.
"If he is to blame, he has to be called and his explanation should be sought and then they should come out with a report.... JPC doesn`t want to call Raja, then the report itself can`t be taken as right," he said.
Maintaining that the DMK has been in favour of Raja being called before the Joint Parliamentary Committee, Elangovan said, "without his deposing before the committee, the report is a waste".
"But let us see how the report is presented. It is a draft. It has to be signed by the members from DMK also," he said.
