Chairman of the Joint Parliamentary Committee on 2G scam P C Chacko on Wednesday ruled out summoning Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to depose before the panel, saying there was no such precedent.

“It is out of the question to call the PM before the JPC as witness as there is no precedent of calling the prime ministers before the JPCs,” he said.

On reports that the BJP is likely to attend Thursday’s JPC meeting, ending its boycott of the panel to once again press for inclusion of Singh and Finance Minister P Chidambaram as witnesses, he said it was “most welcome”. On summoning Chidambaram as witness, Chacko said it would be “decided on the basis of consensus”.
