The PAC in its draft report strongly indicted former Telecom Minister A Raja and came down heavily on the PMO and the Cabinet Secretariat for not taking "corrective action" while not sparing even the Prime Minister for "some unfortunate omissions".
The report condemned the UPA for the spectrum mess. This is expected to lead a new debate between the Congress and the BJP in the coming monsoon session of parliament. The 270-page draft report banged the PM's office.
Eleven of the PAC members from the Congress and its allies had rejected the report. Joshi had said that as chairman he had the right to send the report to the Speaker despite the note of resistance.
