Communications Minister Kapil Sibal on Thursday promised a level playing field for all telecom operators, saying he wanted growth in the sector and not politics.

"We will ensure a level playing field for all telecom operators," Sibal told reporters on the sidelines of the India Telecom 2010 summit here.

His response came to questions on the opposition demand for a joint parliamentary committee (JPC) probe into the allocation of 2G spectrum that the Comptroller and Auditor General of India says has caused a notional loss of Rs 1.76 lakh crores to the exchequer.

Parliament was adjourned for the 20th successive day on Thursday on the issue, with the government ruling out a JPC probe and saying the issue could be debated on the house.

"They (Bharatiya Janata Party) are looking at the (general) elections (in 2014). They are not concerned about the telecom sector," Sibal said.
