PAC's UPA members accuse Joshi of hidden agenda

Lucknow: Parliament's Public Accounts Committee (PAC) Chairman Murli Manohar Joshi of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has challenged the Congress-led central government to dump the panel's report on the 2G scam, declaring that it may get dethroned if it does so.

"I openly challenge the central government to throw the PAC report on the 2G scam that has been submitted to the Lok Sabha speaker... we will then show the Congress and its corrupt allies what we are. Like the central government, other state governments, including the Bahujan Samaj Party (in Uttar Pradesh), indulging in corruption would be dethroned," Joshi told a gathering late Monday evening.

"I have come to know that Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal has said that the PAC report would be thrown into dustbin... It's surprising and shocking that a parliamentary affairs minister is talking about indulging in an unparliamentarily activity... If the PAC report could be thrown into a dustbin, tomorrow they (Congress leaders) can do the same for a Supreme Court order or a law enacted by parliament."

Joshi alleged that the Congress, the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) work in close coordination and their opposition towards one another was merely a drama.

"All of us have seen how the BSP and the SP supported the Congress in refusing to accept the PAC report," said Joshi.

The senior BJP leader demanded that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh should "take immediate action" against all the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) ministers who were found to be involved in corrupt practices.

Reacting to the Supreme Court's stay on the Allahabad's High Court's verdict on the Babri-Ramjanmbhoomi disputed site, Joshi said: "I hail the apex court decision as the contending parties had not sought partition of the land."
