Summoning Raja before JPC not inevitable.
Thrissur: Indian Joint Parliamentart Committee (JPC) Chairman P C Chacko said 'it is not inevitable' to call former Telecom Minister A Raja, prime accused in the 2G spectrum allocation scam case, before the JPC as a witness as all the main witnesses had been called and evidence taken. "It is not inevitable at this juncture to call Raja as all main witnesses have been called and evidence taken," he said. He was responding to a query on CPI leader and JPC member Gurudas Dasgupta's letter to him stressing the need to call Raja as witness. Chacko said Raja had written to Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar to allow him tender evidence as witness before the JPC. Several other persons have also expressed a similar desire but it was impractical to call all of them, he said. "However, a final decision on the matter will be taken after discussions with all JPC members," Chacko told PTI.
