Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar on Thursday rejected the Opposition demand for removal of P C Chacko as the chairman of the JPC.
Opposition and DMK members of the JPC on 2G today demanded the ouster of chairperson P C Chacko for being "highly partisan" and asked Speaker Meira Kumar to replace him with a new chief.
Congress distanced itself from PC Chacko`s remarks that party will take decision on demand for removal of Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman P J Kurien, facing controversy over an old rape case.
Chairman of the Joint Parliamentary Committee on 2G scam P C Chacko ruled out summoning Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to depose before the panel.
BJP leader Yashwant Sinha, who is a member of the Committee, said his party has lost faith in the panel and did not expect it to uncover the truth.
With JPC Chairman P C Chacko
raising questions over the scope of PAC`s inquiry into 2G
case, its chief Murli Manohar Joshi on Wednesday asked him to write
to him directly, a suggestion which was readily accepted.
