New Delhi, Feb 7: After the Supreme Court's decision to cancel the 122 illegal 2G spectrum licenses as well as letting Home Minister P Chidamabaram off the hook from the telecom scam, the move has evoked a war of words between the Congress and the BJP. The verbal challenge posed by Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal is the point in focus. He had asked the BJP to apologize in the aftermath of the apex court stating that there was no evidence to prove that Chidambaram acted in a malafide way on the 2G scam.

On this, senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha waxed eloquently on Sibal's want for an apology and said in a letter that appeared on The Economic Times, "I apologise for the Partition of India; for the lingering Jammu and Kashmir issue and for not resolving it at Simla in 1972; I apologise for India spurning the offer to join the Security Council as a permanent member when it was offered at the time of independence; for the defeat of India in the 1962 war with China and the vexed boundary problem; I apologise for the Hindu rate of growth of 3% for the first three decades of Independence and for all the poverty, deprivation and inequality; I apologise for the massacre of Sikhs in the country in 1984; I apologise for the more recent events like the Army Chief's age row; for the Antrix-Devas deal and for punishing scientists of the eminence of Madhavan Nair without giving them an opportunity for explanation; for the PMO not keeping the PM informed of the 2G scam; for the Supreme Court cancelling the 2G licences; for the CWG scam, the Air India scam, the KG Basin scam, the Adarsh Society scam and for all the other scams for which this government is being wrongly blamed. "

He also took the blame for all the ills that has befell India including the policy paralysis in the government, for the rising fiscal and current account deficits, for the slowing down of the economy. He added in the letter that he was ready to "prostrate myself before Kapil Sibal and apologize repeatedly and profusely to him for all that is wrong with India." [Read the complete letter here].
