Parliament’s public accounts committee (PAC), headed by senior opposition leader Murli Manohar Joshi, met to consider the Comptroller and Auditor General’s report on the 2G spectrum scam for the first time on Monday.

Deputy CAG, Rita Gupta, head of the team that finalised the report, attended the meeting too.

While the opposition parties have been insisting on a joint parliamentary committee to probe the 2G spectrum scam, the UPA government wants the PAC — headed as it is by a senior opposition leader — to consider the report (which is highly critical of the modalities of the spectrum sale) and pinpoint the guilty. “We’ll continue our work and chase every rupee (lost by the government),” Joshi told HT.
