Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is ready to face Parliamentary Accounts Committee (PAC) and wrote a letter to Murli Manohar Joshi, chairman of PAC regarding oppositions demand to form JPC to investigate his role in the 2G spectrum allocation scam involving many politicians, media and corporate lobbyists.
After one week since he made that offer first time last week he wrote to the chairman formally on monday and is ready to face PAC. Murli Manohar Joshi who is not a very big supporter of the recent JPC demand by the opposition has not yet rejected PM's offer.
If the chairman Murli Manohar Joshi accepts the appeal by PM, Manmohan Singh will become the first prime minister in the history of India to appear before this committee. This committee is going to have members from the both the houses of the parliament from ruling party coalition as well as from the opposition parties.
Ms Sushma Swaraj, Leader of the opposition in Lok Sabha wrote in her twitter account “If PAC is no different from JPC, then why is there a provision for a JPC in the rule book?” On the contrary Mr. Joshi said that PAC has no limitation and can inquire about the implementation of the policy.
