New Delhi, Aug 26: Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy was today (Aug 26) allowed by a Delhi court to conduct his private complaint in the 2G scam.

The court also gave him time for filing an application which seeks to make then Finance Minister P Chidambaram an accused in the case as the matter is pending in the Supreme Court.

"Since my application seeking CBI inquiry into the role of Chidambaram in 2G scam is pending before the Supreme Court, it would be in the interest of justice to wait for the apex court's order and then come here (to this court) with the plea to make him (Chidambaram) an accused in the case," Swamy told Special CBI Judge O P Saini.

The Janata Party chief informed the judge that the apex court order on his petition is likely to be delivered on September 1 and then he would file an application by September 15 seeking to make Chidambaram an accused in the case.

The court fixed the matter for further hearing on September 15.

Swamy, during the last hearing, had complained before the court that the charge sheets field by the CBI did not cover the role of the Chidambaram, who "jointly took important decisions" on allocation of radio waves.

He had also urged the court that he would appoint a Special Public Prosecutor to conduct his case himself.
