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."
