Subramanian Swamy-P Chidambaram
New Delhi, Dec 17: With Union Home Minister P Chidambaram having to face many allegations recently, Janata Party President Subramaniam Swamy is all set to add insult to injury when he deposes before the special CBI court exposing the role played by Chidambaram in the 2G spectrum scam.

Swamy is expected to be in court as a witness and give his testimony. The court had on Dec 8 accepted Swamy's plea to present his arguments against Chidamabaram. Besides the Home Minister, the court had also given the go-ahead to examine Sports Secretary Sindhushree Khullar, who was then Joint Secretary Finance, and Joint Director of the CBI, HC Awasthi.

Hearing Swamy's plea to depose before the court, the court had stated that the examining of the witnesses that included senior CBI officials and other public servants will be allowed only after the relevance of their testimony is proved. The judge also added that Swamy could lead evidence in support of his complaint as he has referred to the role of other conspirators in it.

With Swamy determined to cause maximum hurt to Chidamabaram, he had alleged that both Chidambaram and A Raja got into a conspiracy and compromised national security. Swamy had also alleged that Chidambaram allowed Swan telecom and Unitech to sell equity to Etisalat and Telenor.

Swamy will record his statement under section 200 of CrPc. Depending on how convinced the court is on Swamy's statements, the court will record the statement of the witnesses presented by Swamy under Section 202 of CrPc. Depending on all this, the court may or may not take the case forward against Chidambaram.
