We proved, Chidambaram is not guilty, our stand on his involvement vindicated: Congress

Our stand on Chidambaram’s involvement vindicated: Congress
Clean Media Correspondent

New Delhi, Feb 04 (CMC) Minutes after the CBI special judge OP Saini gave relief to Home Minister P Chidambaram, the Congress came out in full force reiterating their stand that Chidambaram had no role to play in 2G spectrum allocation when he was the finance minister.

Justice OP Saini’s judgement today came two days after the Supreme Court of India felt that a trial court should look into the matter, and decide whether P Chidambaram should be made a co-accused in the 2G trial. The judge dismissed Subramanian Swamy’s petition citing lack of evidences.
Speaking to the media Congress ministers took on Subramanian Swamy and said he was being driven by personal agendas and being media savvy.

“To keep himself alive Swamy needs cameras around him, as far as we are concerned our stand is vindicated,” said Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni.
Kapil Sibal, went on to criticise the BJP and Swamy, “There is no evidence against my colleague Chidambaram and our stand on the issue is vindicated. The BJP and Swamy should apologise to Chidambaram, go to his home and apologise, for making irresponsible statement against him.”
Sibal did not spare the media either, “The way the TV channels have debates before the court hearings also needs to be reflected upon.”
The Congress has maintained that Chidambaram in his capacity as the finance minister was in no way involved in any decision involving giving away 2G spectrum licenses to telecos on a first-cum-first-serve basis.
Swamy on the other hand alleges that Chidambaram colluded with A Raja in a criminal conspiracy favoring certain telcos and therefore caused a loss to the exchequer.
Meanwhile, following the ruling Swamy said, “I am not disappointed because its a part of the game. I am surprised and as in other matters concerning 2G when I lose in one court I move the higher court. Will appeal HC, and then SC.”
