All party meet today to end Parliament logjam over JPC

delhi Updated: Dec 02, 2010 09:38 IST

With no solution in sight to the logjam in Parliament, Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar has convened a meeting of leaders of all parties on Thursday as part of her efforts to ensure smooth functioning of the House.

"I have called a meeting. Let me see what happens. I will be trying and making an effort," Kumar told PTI here.

Asked whether she was hopeful of ending the stalemate in Parliament, she said, "Well, yes I am".

Parliament has been paralysed for the past three weeks with virtually no business being transacted in either of the Houses over Opposition demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the allocation of 2G spectrum.

The ruling Congress members too have their share in derailing the proceedings in Parliament with their vociferous demands for action against Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa.
