Mangalore: Union Law Minister M Veerappa
Moily on Friday described as "anti-democratic and an unprecedented
act" the leakage of the draft report of PAC, headed by Murli
Manohar Joshi, on the 2G spectrum scam.

The leakage also amounted to "breach of privilege of
Parliment", Moily told reporters here.
He said the Public Accounts Committee should have adopted
the report unanimously after arriving at a consensus on
various issues.

The draft report was "rejected" by 12 of the 21-member PAC
yesterday amid chaos after UPA representatives and one each of
BSP and SP voted against it before Joshi walked out.
The draft report which was sharply critical of Prime
Minister, his office and others had been opposed by seven
Congress MPs, supported by two from DMK, who alleged it had
been "outsourced" and attacked Joshi seeking to put him in the
dock over the leakage.
