NDA MPs Protest Govt's Refusal To Accept JPC Demand

PTI 13 Dec 2010, 14:30:30 IST
New Delhi, Dec 13 (PTI) BJP-led NDA MPs from both Houses of Parliament today held a protest against the government's refusal to accept their demand for a JPC probe in the 2-G spectrum allocation scam.

NDA Working Chairman L K Advani, Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj, her counterpart in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley, NDA Convenor and JD(U) President Sharad Yadav, and MPs from Shiv Sena and Shiromani Akali Dal held a demonstration in front of Mahatma Gandhi's statue in Parliament House complex.

Speaking to reporters after staging the protest, Swaraj said, "The government is responsible for the logjam. It is because of government's adamance that this situation prevails in Parliament."

She wondered why government was shying away when there is a precedence of four JPCs, two of which were formed by the Congress and two by the NDA government.
