New Delhi (Jagran News Network): Former Telecom Minister Arun Shourie has refuted the Justice Shivraj Patil report on the 2G spectrum allocation, terming it a "fabrication by Kapil Sibal."

Using the Patil report, Telecom Minister Sibal did somersault to pin the blame on the Opposition for the massive 2G scam. "Sibal functions as an advocate of A Raja," said Shourie.

The one-man panel that went into the procedures for giving 2G licences between 2001 and 2009 identified the officials responsible for lapses in implementing the policy in a transparent and fair manner.

The one-man committee was set up by Sibal to look into the policies and procedures followed during the distribution of licences in 2001-2009, a period that includes the NDA regime, and ascertain if they were followed in a transparent manner.

"Some officials have been named and some procedures have been commented upon... What the future course of action should be for the grant of spectrum has been commented upon," Sibal said after receiving the report.
