PC Chacko
New Delhi, April 29: Amid demands by the Opposition for the outright rejection of the draft report on 2G, JPC Chairman P C Chacko today said he was ready to take their amendments in the form of dissent notes but would not change the text of the documents.

"I am willing for a detailed discussion on each of the (10) chapters. The text cannot be changed. The Opposition's amendments can be in the form of dissent notes...let the two (draft and the dissent notes) be presented so that Parliament is aware of the two views," he told reporters outside Parliament House.

He said following the demand by 15 members of the JPC for his removal, he had met Speaker Meira Kumar to get clarity on whether he can convene the meeting.

"I had met the Speaker. Today itself I will announce the next date of the meeting," he said.

On Friday, he had said the next meeting could take place on May 2 or 3.

Chacko had also expressed his willingness to consider amendments to controversial aspects of the draft report which has given a clean chit to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Finance Minister P Chidambaram.

He had said amendments could be considered if the Opposition were able to convince him through discussion about anything wrong in the draft instead of indulging in politics.
