Opposition will not rest till nod for JPC probe in 2G scam:Jaya

Chennai, Dec 8 : AIADMK leader J Jayalalithaa today said the Opposition would not rest till a JPC probe was ordered into the multi-crore 2G spectrum scam involving former Telecom Minister A Raja and accused Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi of 'blackmailing' its ally Congress on the issue.
''There is no alterative to a JPC probe. The Opposition will not rest until it is cleared,'' she said in a statement here.

Referring to Mr Karunanidhi defending Mr Raja reportedly stating he alone could not have perpetrated a scam of such enormity on his own, she alleged it was a tacit and inadvertent admission that there were more people behind the scam.

''It is a veiled threat to the Congress leadership to go slow on the spectrum investigation,'' she alleged adding if precipitate steps were taken to corner Mr Raja, Mr Karunanidhi had warned he would not hesitate to reveal the names of some others directly or indirectly involved in the scam.

Ms Jayalalithaa said ''the implication is that such a revelation could be unpalatable to the Congress and this is Mr Karunanidhi's way of blackmailing his alliance partner.''
