NEW DELHI, Feb 23 (PTI) - Government today conceded the Opposition demand for having 30 members in the JPC to probe the 2G spectrum issue, giving up its earlier plan for a 21-member panel to accommodate smaller parties like AIADMK, sources said.

AIADMK MP M Thambidurai met Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj and NDA Working Chairperson L K Advani today to request that the principal opposition also take up its case for a 30-member Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC).

Both Advani and Swaraj conveyed these sentiments to the government and suggested that a bigger JPC be formed.

"Even Parliamentary Standing Committee - which are considered mini-JPCs - have 30 members. Moreover, the earlier three JPCs on corruption have had 30 members," Swaraj told reporters.
