New Delhi, Dec 13  :  Congress President Sonia Gandhi today rejected the demand for a JPC into the 2G spectrum scam and hit out at the opposition, saying that the country will not forget and forgive them for the wastage of an entire session of Parliament.

In her address to the Congress Parliamentary Party (CPP) general body meeting here, she slammed the BJP over the issue of corruption while referring to the Karnataka developments and the circumstances in which Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa was allowed to continue despite the charges of corruption in land allotment.

Turning down the Opposition demand for a JPC into the 2G spectrum issue, Gandhi said where was the need for a JPC when PAC and CBI were looking into it besides the Supreme Court monitoring it and a retired apex court judge inquiring into the matter, according to party MPs who attended the meeting.
