2G JPC report based on  facts, unbiased: Chacko
The joint parliamentary committee (JPC) report on 2G spectrum allocation was based on facts and was unbiased, panel chief PC Chacko said on Friday as the opposition criticised the document for being prejudicial.

‘After hard work of one-and-half years, I have made a draft report. It is not a biased report and is based on facts and on the written document. I hope it is acceptable to all the members of the JPC,’ Chacko told reporters.

The parliamentary panel probing the 2G scam has reportedly blamed former telecom minister A. Raja for the spectrum allocation and cleared Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and finance minister P Chidambaram of any wrongdoing.

Declining to comment on the contents of the report, Chacko said: ‘We are meeting for a detailed discussion on 25 March and that day probably the draft will be adopted.’

Chacko said he was confident of sorting out differences and the report being adopted on 25 March.

The opposition has expressed reservations about the contents of the report and said they will take up the matter in parliament April 22, resuming its budget session after a three-week break. ‘I can only say it appears more to be a Congress document not a JPC draft report,’ BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said, terming the leakage to the media a ‘gross breach of parliamentary propriety’.

Communist Party of India (CPI) leader D. Raja also slammed the document as being ‘prejudged and prejudicial’.

Chacko in his defence said that he had tried to make the draft report acceptable to all.
