As charges and counter charges flew thick and fast over the PAC draft report on the 2G spectrum scam, Union minister Ashwani Kumar on Friday accused committee chairman Murli Manohar Joshi of "misusing" his office to further BJP's political agenda.

"I think the Chairman who is a seasoned politician should not have tried to push the political agenda of his party by misusing the office," the minister of state for parliamentary affairs told reporters.

He alleged that by seeking to ignore the reservations of a majority of PAC members, Joshi has "betrayed an inclination to subserve the political agenda of his party rather than to uphold the dignity of the institution of the PAC."

Maintaining that such report is not a report at all in the eyes of the law, he said, "It is incorrect to suggest that the next committee of the PAC is precluded from hearing the matter afresh or to review the deliberations of the previous PAC."
