The Prime Minister Acts in 2G Spectrum Scam:

                           CVC Disposed of 804 Cases in December 2010 Major
                 Penalty Proceedings Recommended against  226 Officers

The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) disposed of 804 cases during December 2010 referred to it for advice. Of these, 667 complaints were  sent for necessary action/ATR whereas 48 complaints were sent for  investigation and report. No action was required on 123 complaints.

The Commission advised imposition of major penalty against 226 officers including 50 from Department of Communications, 36 from Central Board of Excise & Customs, 23 from Ministry of Railways, 13  from State Bank of India, 10 from Vijaya Bank, 9 from Punjab & Sind Bank, 8 from M.C.D., 7 from Andhra Bank, 6 from Canara Bank, 5 each from Allahabad Bank, Bank of India, Punjab National Bank, Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd.& UCO Bank. Remaining 31 cases pertained to different departments of the Government of India and PSUs.

Recoveries to the tune of about Rs.2.78 crore were effected after Commission conducted technical examination of some departments.
 My View:
......Therefore JPC or destabilising Parliament is not the only answer. Will the so called opposition allow the Dr Singh to function as a Prime Minister of India? His critics may now refrain from dishonouring Dr Singh.
