NEW DELHI: Senior BJP leader L K Advani on Wednesday demanded that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh should immediately respond to Supreme Court's observation on delay in taking a decision on the plea for sanction for prosecution of former Telecom Minister A Raja in the 2G spectrum allocation issue.


"The PM should immediately respond to what the Supreme Court has said on Raja issue. We are demanding a JPC probe into the issue in Parliament and the government should think on it," a PTI report quoted Advani as saying.

"I don't remember the SC raising a question like this in 60 years of my parliamentary career," Advani said.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday took exception to 16-month-long "inaction" and "silence" of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on former MP Subramaniam Swamy's complaint seeking sanction for action against then telecom minister A. Raja over the 2G spectrum scam
