The Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) that is probing the 2G spectrum allocation scam was on Thursday told by the Union Ministry of Finance how in 2006 the then Telecom Minister, Dayanidhi Maran, was able to remove the issue of spectrum pricing from the terms of reference (ToR) of the Group of Ministers (GoM) on Telecom.
The Ministry of Finance, which was then headed by P. Chidambaram, strongly felt that spectrum pricing should be discussed in the GoM and subsequently cleared by the Cabinet, but Mr. Maran did not agree to this, JPC Chairman P.C. Chacko told journalists here.
The JPC was briefed about the spectrum pricing issue by senior Finance Ministry officials.
Now that the matter is seized by the Courts & JPC, everybody is trying to shift the blame on the fallen guy, Maran;  However, the Chairman of the GoM cannot absolve himself of the failure to insist on the "Right as well as the Responsibility" of the insisting on a collective decision, overruling the Telecom Minister, in a matter of such grave National Importance!
