The Public Account Committee (PAC) meeting over the 2G spectrum scam report did not go smoothly.
Congress, Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party demanded a division and vote on the report.
committee Chairman Murli Manohar Joshi, a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP
insisted on speaking on the issue but the members started shouting and did not allow him to continue. Joshi then adjourned the meeting and walked out without voting on the 2G scam report that he had prepared.

the 11 members belonging to the Congress, Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party elected Congress MP Saifuddin Soz as the new PAC Chairman.

2G spectrum scam report prepared by PAC was rejected as 11 of the 21 members submitted written notes casting their votes against it.

The members wanted to how the people of India , citizens of India got the report,
How the report got leaked in advance?
The members demanded an enquiry into it.

Congress spokesperson Jayanthi Natarajan said that "BJP wasted the time and money of the people and disrupted Parliament. I want to ask Murli Manohar Joshi how was the report leaked and who will take the responsibility of the leaked report. BJP has destroyed the institution of PAC,"

This is the one reform we Indians need to make in our political system.

We need a law that every committee report should be first placed on the internet, then it should be given to High Court or SC, then it should be given to Government of India or concert government of India authority.

Today BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi re-appointed as the Public Accounts Committee chairman for another term.
The Lok Sabha Speaker followed the convention of allowing the Leader of Opposition to pick a person of her choice after the term of the previous PAC ended yesterday.
Mr Joshi submitted his report to Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar on the last day of his term as head of the Committee yesterday.

BJP Leader Joshi said that "I have dispatched the report to the Lok Sabha Speaker's office. The Speaker should accept the report and table it in Parliament. The government should be accountable to the people as they have a right to know where and how the money was spent. It is the job if the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) job to find out where the money went."

Again here the problem is that law is not clear and got loopholes.
Good law is one which has simple language and which do not keep the scope of saying and using to be or not to be.
