New Delhi, Apr 23: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is expected to meet Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Thursday, Apr 23, in the wake of opposition's demand for a probe by a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JCB) into the IPL controversy.

The situation following the Indian Premier League (IPL) row, which eventually led to the resignation of Union Minister Shashi Tharoor is said to be discussed in a meeting of Congress core group, headed by Sonia Gandhi.

Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee said in Lok Sabha said that decision on JPC will be taken into consideration, but it cannot be done in a hurry, adding that he would convey the sentiments of the house to Prime Minister.

"It (a decision on JPC) is to be taken after due diligence and consideration. It cannot be like instant coffee or instant consideration,"

"I will communicate your sentiments to the Prime Minister. As and when the government takes a decision, we will come to Parliament. Let us wait for some time."
