NDA today gave notice of raking up in Parliament the JPC draft report on 2G exonerating Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Finance Minister P Chidambaram while appealing for its rejection in toto.

The Opposition alliance,which is miffed at the contents of the leaked JPC report,also questioned how the panel exonerated Singh and Chidambaram even without examining them.

The NDA top brass which held a meeting at the residence of its working president L K Advani,said it will also raise the issue of coal mines allocation scam and the government’s alleged interference in the CBI report on it,besides the brutal rape of a five-year-old in east Delhi.

The alliance leaders met to discuss its strategy for the second phase of Parliament’s Budget session resuming Monday and gave ample indications that the Opposition will raise a storm over these issues.

The NDA,however,said it will raise the “interference” in CBI report on coal scam on the first day of the resumed session on Monday.

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 sharp 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.
