New Delhi: Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar on Friday gave indications that the controversial document of the Public Accounts Committee on 2G scam could not be called a
While Kumar did not say anything directly, the hints she
dropped suggested that the draft report submitted by PAC
Chairman Murli Manohar Joshi could not have been as per rules.
"There is no confusion. Anybody who feels there is
confusion, if they go through rules everything will be crystal
clear. There is no grey area. The rules are there. My letter
is there," the Speaker said.
She, however, did not share with reporters what she had
written to the PAC Chairman.
"I have written a letter to the PAC Chairman. It is not
for public (consumption). I do not want to go into any further
detail. It is a matter of letters exchanged between me and him
(PAC Chairman)," Kumar said.
Joshi had submitted a draft report of the Public
Accounts Committee on the 2G spectrum allocation scandal to
Kumar on April 30 along with a letter detailing the sequence
of events of the meeting of the Committee on April 28.
The PAC meeting on April 28 had descended into chaos
after the UPA managed to secure the support of BSP and SP to
obtain a surprising majority which "rejected" the draft report
on the 2G scam that was sharply critical of Prime Minister,
his office and others.
The Speaker had returned the draft report, saying it had
not been adopted by the panel.
