BJP members walk out from JPC meeting on 2G

September 18, 2012 12:43 IST

TelecomBharatiya Janata Party members on Tuesday walked out of the proceedings of a Joint Parliamentary Committee on 2G scam, claiming that they were not allowed to raise the issue of finalising the list of witnesses.

On August 22 also, BJP members had walked out of the JPC meeting alleging that Congress members had used foul language when they sought inclusion of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Finance Minister P Chidambaram in the finalised list of witnesses to be called before the JPC.

The members present in meeting said BJP members led by Yashwant Sinha walked out of the proceedings after committee chairman P C Chacko said the panel would first take oral evidence from former Finance Secretary and present Reserve Bank of India Governor D Subbarao, who appeared before the JPC on Tuesday.

Subbarao was the Finance Secretary between April 2007 and September 2008.
