30 April : Unmindful of ‘rejection’ of the draft report on 2G scam by UPA members, PAC Chairman Murli Manmohar Joshi on Saturday submitted it to Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar and insisted that it be tabled in Parliament.
Hours after he sent the report to the Speaker’s office on the last day of tenure of the current PAC, he dismissed the UPA members’ claim that the report had been rejected.
“I have submitted the report… My expectation is that the Speaker should accept it and place it in Parliament,” he said addressing a press conference.
Terming as “unconstitutional” the claim that 11 MPs of the 21-member committee had “rejected” the report, he said such a possibility does not exist till the report is “read” by members and “discussed” para by para.“It is wrong to say that 11 members have rejected (the report). It is unconstitutional,” he maintained about the report which was sharply critical of the Prime Minister, PMO and the then Finance Minister P Chidambaram among others.
