11 MPs, including one each from SP and BSP, on Thursday demanded rejection of the draft PAC report on the 2G scam, which has indicted former telecom minister A Raja and made critical observations about Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and finance minister P Chidambaram.

At the meeting of the 21 member committee, convened to discuss the draft report, nine members belonging to the ruling UPA -- seven Congress, two DMK -- and one each from SP and BSP opposed its adoption, Committee sources said.

They said the members spoke their views and asked that the draft report be rejected, in writing, to chairman Murli Manohar Joshi.

After three hours of deliberations, Joshi found the going tough and adjourned the proceedings till 4 pm, when the issue may be put to vote.
