New Delhi, April 21: BJP-led NDA on Saturday, April 20 wondered how the JPC draft report on 2G spectrum allocation issue had exonerated Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Finance Minister P Chidambaram without examining them and appealed to all members of the committee to reject the document in toto.

The NDA top brass held a meeting at the residence of its working president L K Advani to discuss the strategy for Parliament's budget session resuming on Sunday.

There were ample indications that the opposition will raise a storm over a slew of issues, including the JPC draft report on 2G spectrum, coal mines allocation scam and alleged misuse of CBI.

The NDA is miffed at the contents of the leaked JPC report, especially the clean chit given to Singh and Chidambaram.

It also expressed resentment over A Raja, former Telecom Minister and the main accused in 2G scam, not being called by the JPC though he had offered to depose before it.

"It is Parliament, the people and the country that are betrayed through such acts of dishonesty. The NDA, therefore, appeals to all the members of JPC to reject this report in toto," the opposition alliance said.

The Prime Minister came in for a strong attack from the opposition parties which accused him of being responsible for the problems plaguing the country.

"Timidity, uncertainty, loss of direction and unmatched absence of leadership characterizes the conduct of the present Prime Minister who sits atop the most corrupt government since independence, behaving as if he sees nothing, hears nothing and thus supinely does nothing despite the loud ringing of the alarm bell of mounting chaos," a statement issued by the NDA alleged.

Advani told reporters that the coal mine scam and reports of government vetting the CBI report on it- which was to be submitted to the Supreme Court- in a bid to "dilute" it will figure on the first day of Parliament after the recess on April 22.
