Swamy recently stated that he would seek Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's sanction to prosecute Chidambaram. “I will seek the PM's sanction to prosecute Chidambaram. I will also seek the sanction of the PM for the prosecution of Sonia Gandhi, heading the National Advisory Council, for corruption. I would take steps around April 15," he was quoted as saying.
After giving some damaging statements earlier, Swamy said that a cabinet committee had directed A Raja and P Chidamabaram to decide on the rates for which the 2G radio waves were to be sold. Swamy alleges that Chidambaram did not pass this piece of information to Raja after he became Home Minister. On the issue, Swamy said, “This is a conspiracy. Chidambaram must resign immediately."
Swamy did not spare others in the Gandhi household, when he claimed that Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Congress president Sonia Gandhi owned 20 per cent shares in Unitech that is caught in the 2G scam as well.
