'Stalling Parliament may yield results'

The Opposition's move not to allow Parliament to function till its demand for a JPC probe into 2G spectrum scam is met could yield desired results, senior BJP leader L K Advani said on Monday.

"Sometimes, business not proceeding also yields results," he told reporters.

Advani was asked to comment on Parliament failing to transact virtually any business during the Winter Session which ends on Monday.

When asked for her reaction on the ongoing logjam, Speaker Meira Kumar said: "I am anguished" at the situation.

On Monday, both the Houses stood disrupted for the 23rd consecutive day over the opposition demand for a JPC probe.

This is possibly the longest disruption in Parliament. The opposition demand for JPC into the Rs 64 crore kickbacks into the Bofors gun deal had also led to disruption of Parliament for about 45 days in 1987, but the government has maintained there has been no shutdown like this.
