Fifteen Opposition members on the JPC inquiring into the 2G scam, who had earlier met the Lok Sabha Speaker expressing no confidence in panel chairman P C Chacko, have written another letter to Chacko’s office, this time “rejecting the draft report in toto”.

The letter was written by members of eight different parties on Tuesday. Six BJP members, two JD(U) members, two DMK members, and one each from the CPI, CPM, BJD, AIADMK, and Trinamool Congress sent the letter. The letter reiterates the members’ no confidence in Chacko.

Trinamool Congress’ Kalyan Banerjee told Express that the “six-line letter was drafted after consultations among Opposition members on the parliamentary panel”. DMK’s Tiruchy Siva said he had sent a common letter along with that of his party colleague T R Baalu. “Different parties have given separate, though similar letters,” he said.

BJP’s Yashwant Sinha said, “Now the issue of removing those parts of the report which had alleged that the telecom policy followed by the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government had caused a loss of `42,000 crore is not relevant as the complete report has been rejected.”
