PAC to meet on Apr 28 to adopt report on 2G

New Delhi: Against the backdrop of sharp
divisions within it, Parliament`s Public Accounts Committee
(PAC) will be meeting on April 28 with an intention of
adopting a report on 2G spectrum scam to be submitted before
its term ends two days later.
Sources said the meeting of the 22-member committee has
been convened on April 28 to discuss and possibly take up
adoption of the report on 2G, a move being pressed by its
Chairman Murli Manohar Joshi.
"Once the report is adopted either unanimously or
through majority, the Chairman has the right to present it to
the Speaker if Parliament is not in session...it could be done
before or on April 30 also," the sources said.
The PAC has been a divided house during the last two
meetings with members from the ruling Congress and DMK
opposing pursuance of the case when JPC has already been
formed and the matter was being probed by the CBI and
monitored by the Supreme Court.
The divisions scuttled the efforts to summon the Prime
Minister`s Principal Secretary TK A Nair, Cabinet Secretary
KM Chandrasekar and Attorney General G E Vahanvati.
The Committee had then sent written questions to all the
three and they have since responded.
