2G:Responses pour in the aftermath of Chidambaram verdict


Subramanian Swamy
New Delhi, Feb 4: The much-anticipated verdict has finally been pronounced at the special CBI court that has let Home Minister P Chidambaram off the hook in the 2G spectrum scam. Judge OP Saini who made the landmark decision rejected Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy's petition to make Chidambaram a co-accused in the 2G scam.

The verdict was met with varied responses from politicians and leaders across political parties. Some of the responses are given below -

BJP's Jaswant Singh : "If you are thick skinned anything is a reprieve. The issue is much larger than the Congress or BJP. The issue is the governance of India. The cancellation of 122 licenses puts a question mark on one of the great success stories of India - the telecom revolution."

BJP's Balbir Punj: "BJP's demand stands, Chidambaram should resign from his office immediately."

Journalist Arun Shourie : "Order is a great relief for Congress & setback for Opposition."

Congress' Ambika Soni: I am happy that the court order has backed the truth. Mr Subramanian Swamy lives of the media, he is doing all this to keep his presence alive."

Union Minister Kapil Sibal: "Let Swamy appeal to every higher court. He will have to appeal to God after that."

Congress spokesperson, Manish Tiwari: "No question of moral responsibility."

Finance Minister, Pranab Mukherjee: "It's a good judgement, relief for the govt. I welcome the judgement."

Lawyer Ram Jethmalani: "The 2G court order is not a relief for Chidambaram and is only the beginning of trouble for him in the scam."

Law Minister Salman Khurshid: "Must respect Court order, our stand is vindicated."
