New Delhi: Undeterred by rejection of the controversial report on 2G scam by majority which was returned by the Speaker , PAC Chairperson Murli Manohar Joshi on Friday hinted at carrying on the fight by announcing plans to table the document in the new committee.

Joshi, who is also the Chairperson of the new PAC which came into effect from May 1, 2011, said, "The 2G report, which has been returned by the Speaker, will be tabled in the new PAC and it will then decide what should be done."

He was non-committal on whether the Committee would resort to voting in the PAC to decide the next course of action.

Since the ruling coalition has a majority in the new PAC as well, another sparring session between the UPA members and the opposition is likely to take place when Joshi brings the controversial report in the committee.

Congress members in the new PAC have already indicated that they would not allow the new panel to take up the 2G spectrum allocation scam as JPC is already looking into it.

There are major divisions between the Congress and its allies on one side and BJP, JD(U) on the other on whether the 2G spectrum scam should be probed by the PAC now as a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) has already been formed.

An unfazed Joshi said the document that he submitted to the Speaker was a "PAC report" and not just his report. However, he maintained that to take a decision on the report was the prerogative of the Speaker which he has chosen to return .

While dealing with the Rs 1.76 Lakh Crore telecom scam, Joshi had faced a lot of opposition from PAC members from Congress-led UPA as well as outside supporters of the government, namely the SP and BSP.

Congress leader Digvijay Singh dismissed BJP demand for resignation of Home Minister P Chidambaram for being allegedly involved in the 2G scam. "BJP is making such demands as it has not got any agenda," he said.
