On 22 August also, BJP members had walked out of the JPC meeting alleging that Congress members had used foul language when they sought inclusion of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Finance Minister P Chidambaram in the finalised list of witnesses to be called before the JPC.

The members present in meeting said BJP members led by Yashwant Sinha walked out of the proceedings after Committee chairman PC Chacko said the panel would first take oral evidence from former finance secretary and present RBI Governor D Subbarao, who appeared before the JPC today.

Subbarao was the finance secretary between April 2007 and September 2008.
