Joshi should clarify stance on 2G spectrum: Congress
New Delhi: Public Accounts Committee (PAC) chief and BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi should clarify his stance on the controversy over the 2G spectrum losses mentioned in the draft report of the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG), union minister Manish Tewari said on Friday.
Controversy arose after principal auditor RP Singh told television channels that the CAG's 2G report had been influenced by Joshi and the loss figure mentioned in the report was presumptive and restored despite having been deleted by him in the draft.
"What is extremely important is that (in) May 2010, when the draft report is prepared by RP Singh, the loss is quantified at Rs 20,645 crore. But in November 2010, (when) the report is presented before the parliament, the loss jumps to Rs 1 lakh 76 thousand crore," Tiwari told reporters.
Mumbai Police rejected Chennai Super Kings (CSK) boss Gurunath Meiyappan's plea to give him time till May 27 to appear before its crime branch for questioning with regard to his role in betting and spot fixing in the current edition of the IPL.
