2G scam: PAC chief submits draft report to Speaker

New Delhi: Unfazed by the “rejection“ of the draft report on 2G scam, PAC Chairman Murli Manohar Joshi on Saturday submitted it to Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar on the last day of his term as head of the Committee.

Lok Sabha sources said that Joshi sent the report with a covering letter through officials who submitted it to the Speaker“s office.

The controversial draft report that was sharply critical of the PMO, Prime Minister and others was “rejected“ by the majority of members in the 21 member Committee on Thursday during a chaotic meeting.

While Joshi claimed that he had “adjourned“ the meeting, Congress members alleged that he had walked out after which they “elected“ Rajya Sabha Saifuddin Soz to chair the meeting which “rejected“ the report.

11 members belonging to Congress, DMK and one each from SP and BSP “voted“ against adoption of the report.

They also said they would present to the Lok Sabha their version of the outcome of the meeting and evidence of rejection of the report.
