Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has said the Centre should concede the opposition's demand for a JPC probe into the 2G spectrum scam.
"The demand for a JPC inquiry is of the entire opposition.. it should be fulfilled," Kumar said.
"There has been tradition in the country for constituting the JPC...on one hand we have waged a war against corruption in Bihar, the Centre is not not agreeing to the demand for a JPC probe into the 2G spectrum deal on the other+, he said.
"We are votary for a JPC... it will raise the credibility of democracy," he said and held the Centre responsible for what happened in parliament.
Referring to the decision to scrap the allocation of funds for Local Area Development schemes of MLAs and MLCs in Bihar, he said "our fight against corruption will relentlessly continue."
"The people of the state is with the government on the war against corruption," Kumar said.
He said the state government had already initiated proceedings for confiscation of houses of the public servants constructed with utilisation of resources beyond their known sources of income for opening schools in the promises.
