Congress using JPC to subvert truth on 2G scandal: Jaitley

Bangalore, April 19 (IANS) Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Arun Jaitley Friday accused the Congress of using the Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) to “subvert” the truth about airwave allocation corruption scandal.

“If the JPC finds they (Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and the then finance minister P. Chidambaram) were innocent, all I can tell you is this JPC report will meet the same fate as the Bofors JPC,” he told reporters here reacting to the draft report of JPC on 2G scandal.

The leader of the opposition in Rajya Sabha asserted that correspondence between former telecom minister A. Raja and the prime minister makes it clear that Manmohan Singh and Chidambaram knew what was happening.

“The Congress and UPA – neck deep in corruption, have subverted the truth using the JPC mechanism,” alleged Jaitley.
