2G Scam: PM ready to face PAC
Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh wrote a letter to Dr Murli Manohar Joshi, chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, expressing his readiness to face it regarding the presumptive loss of Rs 1.76 lakh crore to the exchequer in 2G spectrum allocation in 2008.
Dr Singh wrote in his letter that he is willing to appear before the PAC should the Committee choose to seek clarifications from him eventhough there is no precedent of the Prime Minister appearing before a PAC.
Dr. Joshi said the PAC would take an appropriate decision at an appropriate time.
The BJP is in a quandry since if PAC agrees to question the Prime Minister, their demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee to probe the 2G scam peters down.
