The demand for JPC has led to stalemate in Parliament with the government stoutly resisting Opposition's demand.

The meeting on Dec 27 is assumed to add significance with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh offering to appear before the Committee. But there has been no official word yet about the Prime Minister making a formal request.

A decision to ask Mr Rai to appear before the powerful parliamentary committee was taken during its last meeting earlier this month. The Committee has already invited views and suggestions on the 2G spectrum allocation.

"Taking into consideration the importance of the subject and the nationwide interest evinced in it, the Committee has decided to invite Memoranda containing views/suggestions from various individuals, experts, associations, institutions, organisations interested in the subject matter," the Lok Sabha Secretariat said in a notification.
