Senior Congress leader H R Bharadwaj on Monday attacked former Finance Minister P Chidambaram for blaming ex-Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on the 2G spectrum issue and instead accused him of being "solely responsible".
The JPC on 2G spectrum allocation has concluded that Attorney General GE Vahanvati was aware of the procedure approved by the Department of Telecommunication on first-come-first served criteria in file notings.
Former CAG Vinod Rai, who faced intense attack from government over 2G spectrum report which pegged the presumptive loss at Rs 1.76 lakh crore, has said the audit had been conducted as per the global norms.
Against the backdrop of opposition demand for his removal, JPC Chairman PC Chacko on Friday met Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar to explain his position on the issues concerning the controversial draft report on 2G scam.
CPI MP Gurudas Dasgupta on Saturday claimed that the JPC report on 2G spectrum allocation which was `undemocratically` released on Thursday was `a farce and a fraud committed on democracy in the country`.
Not being averse to idea of multi-member CAG institution, Comptroller and Auditor General Vinod Rai on Friday said the change should be accompanied by conferment of adequate responsibility and power to the public auditor.
