Parliamentary panel has no plans to call Amar Singh, Ahmed Patel
August 18, 2008 16:58 IST
The two leaders, both Rajya Sabha members, have allegedly been named by three Bharatiya Janata Party members of Parliament in their complaint before Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee [Images]. Both Singh and Patel have denied any involvement.
Asked whether Singh and Patel would be called for questioning, Deo parried a direct reply saying there were no plans as of now to call any more witness.
On when the panel will submit its report, he said "as soon as possible. We will meet soon, may be within a week and try our best to give the report by August 29, (the day the committee's term expires)."
After deposing before the committee, Kulkarni told media-persons he had assisted in the whistle-blowing operation. "If an impartial inquiry is held, the truth will come out and Amar Singh will be found guilty," he claimed adding that he, however, did not doubt the impartiality of the panel.
