New Delhi: In remarks that could embarrass the UPA coalition, Trinamool Congress on Tuesday said it supported a JPC probe into the 2G spectrum scam but would leave a decision on the matter to the government.

"If the government agrees for a JPC, it is good ....but we will support the government in whatever stand it and the Prime Minister take. We believe the Prime Minister is honest," the party`s Chief Whip in Lok Sabha Sudip Bandopadhyay told reporters here.
"We want the deadlock in Parliament to end. If JPC is formed, it is good. But we are with the government," he said.
Bandopadhyay criticised the Opposition for "disrupting" Parliament, saying "we want the Houses to run".
