Will the stalemate end?

The demand for JPC – Joint parliamentary probe – is absolute stubbornness on part of the Opposition! The budget session is to commence on Feb 21st and the need of the hour is to compromise on the issue of 2G spectrum probe – so as to call for a ‘quick’ remedial action and functioning of the parliament. If you look at the past experience, neither JPC or PAC ( Public account committee) probe is going to result in any penal action. So what is the big difference??

In addition, the public perception on corruption is not going to differ much – whether it is JPC or PAC? Public is quite helpless, to the extent of being indifferent – and, they really do not appreciate the political battle between UPA and BJP led opposition, at taxpayer’s expense. 2G spectrum scam is not so simple issue all together! What is discovered in the scam is only ‘a tip of the iceberg’ – and worst, at the end, the opposing groups collude, eventually! Already, there is lot of parliamentary time wasted; at least, the budget session should prove to be important to the opposition and the ruling party/ side. Let the stalemate end!

We all know the fate of last two JPCs – Bofors Gun scandal and Harshan Mehta/ Stock exchange scam – nothing happened right? No body was really penalized! The stalling of Parliament does not prove any point at all.
