A JPC on the PAC!

Sir, can you please tell us what was asked at the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) looking into the 2G scam?

I’m sorry, it’s all sub-judice.

Can you at least tell us what you mean when you said that Ratan Tata was being ‘cooperative’ and Niira Radia ‘elusive’?

By that I mean that Mr Tata was helpful while Ms Radia wasn’t. Beyond that, I can’t comment.

Our sources tell us the PAC actually didn’t ask any questions. Samosas and cold drinks were served, some World Cup matches were discussed and you, sir, had told them to pretend that they were being interrogated.

And how do you know all this?

Well, sir, with everything sub-judice, we don’t have any clue what the PAC is doing and whether it's really doing anything at all.

I see. Let there be a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the PAC’s functioning then!

Do say: Ratan Tata confessed being lonely enough to chat for minutes with crank-callers.

Don’t say: No one called Niira Radia.
