Kanpur, Feb 5 (PTI) BJP today said there would be nolet-up in its stand on a JPC probe into the 2G spectrum scamand threatened to disrupt the forthcoming Budget session ofParliament if the government did not accept the demand.

"We stick to our demand for a Joint ParliamentaryCommittee probe into 2G spectrum allocation and other scamsand will not allow Parliament to function during the Budgetsession," senior BJP leader Rajnath Singh said.

He was adderssing a rally where other NDA leaders,including BJP veteran L K Advani, JD(U) chief Sharad Yadav andthose from Shiv Sena and Akali Dal could not reach as theiraircraft did not land here due to bad weather and returned toLucknow.

The Winter session of Parliament was washed out as theopposition kept pressing the government for a JPC probe anddid not allow both the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha to function,insisting on its demand.

Besides corruption, the BJP leader said, the issue ofprice rise would be vociferously raised by tyhe oppositionduring the Budget session starting on February 21.

"No matter how much the Congress blames us fordisrupting Parliament proceedings and accuses us of harmingthe interest of the people, we want to tell the nation that bydemanding JPC we intend to retrieve the Rs 1.76 lakh crorepresumptive loss to the exchequer because of 2G scam," hesaid.

The BJP leader attacked both BSP and SP on the 2G issuesaying both the parties opposed Congress in Uttar Pradesh butbehaves as a UPA supporter at the Centre.

Singh said both these parties initially demanded a JPCprobe in the 2G scam but when the Centre expedited the probeinto disproportionate assets of their leaders, they startedsinging a different tune by demanding a debate instead of JPC.

On the issue of price rise, the former BJP presidentsaid that so long as the NDA was in power inflation was undercontrol, but the moment the Congress came to power, pricesskyrocketed.

He said inflation in neighbouring countries likePakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka was not growing at the paceat which it was rising in India.

He said people were fed up with the policies of UPAgovernment and added that they would give a befitting reply toCongress in the next Lok Sabha elections.
