Breaking News : Dr. Swamy Exposed Chidambaram Role in 2G SCAM
After Pranab's note, Swamy targets Chidambaram
New Delhi:Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy on Wednesday said that criminal culpability was clear on the part of Home Minister P Chidambaram in the 2G spectrum allocation after new report suggesting the then finance minister's involvement in the case.
A Finance Ministry note send by Dr PGS Rao, Deputy Director in the Finance Ministry and approved by Pranab Mukherjee to Vini Mahajan, Joint Secretary in the Prime Minister's Office on March 25, 2011 regarding allocation and pricing of 2G spectrum has cast doubts over the role of Chidambaram.
"Mukherjee now decided to come clean as the matter is under the supervision of Supreme Court. Prime Minister is not culpable, it may be civil wrong and not criminal wrong," Swamy said.
He wondered there may be a political battle between both the ministers but whatever Mukherjee wrote in the letter to Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) was true.
"Both the Prime Minister and Mukherjee had no authority on 2G spectrum decision. The Prime Minister is not culpable. It was entirely upto the telecom and finance ministers to decide on the spectrum issue," he said.
The Finance Ministry note categorically stated that the Department of Telecom (DoT) would have been forced to cancel the 2G licences doled out by Raja, had the Ministry of Finance under Chidambaram, stuck to its original demand for auctioning the initial 'start-up spectrum' of 4.4 megahertz each allotted to the 2008 licensees.
