The demand by the opposition for JPC into the 2G spectrum allocation row was illogical and if they have no faith in parliamentary democracy then they should 'join the Maoists', finance minister Pranab Mukherjee said on Saturday.

"The total winter session of Parliament was lost. It proves that the opposition has no faith in parliamentary democracy. If they do not have faith in parliamentary democracy, they should join the Maoists," Mukherjee told a rally in Siliguri.

Pointing out that the Centre had ordered an inquiry into the controversy as early as November 9, 2009, he said "the demand for JPC is illogical. The JPC has no power to punish," he said.
