Aircel-Maxis deal: Manish Tiwari supports Chidambaram


Manish Tiwari
New Delhi, Sept 20: Supporting ex-finance minister P.Chidambaram. in the Aircel-Maxis deal, Congress leader Manish Tiwari said that the decision was taken as per law.

He said,"There was nothing which was done which was not in accordance with rules, which were prevalent at that point in time. After this clarification or the statement by the former finance minister, I don`t think there is anything to add or subtract to it."

Meanwhile, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy urged that the CBI should thotoughly investigate Chidambaram's role in the deal. Explaining his demand, Swamy said,"It has turned out that in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) it was known that the Aircel-Maxis deal was an illegal deal because it was directly or indirectly hundred percent owned by Malaysian industrialist T Ananda Krishnan......"

He further added,"Now, who enabled that, FIPB had put it up for signature with the provision that the matter would be according to law. But Chidambaram never went into it, he immediately signed. Today, he is blaming officers to putting up the file with him. This is not the job of Minister to blindly sign what officers put before him and certainly not Chidambaram who is suppose to be a lawyer."

According to a report by Zee Biz, Swamy, who is also the petitioner of the case, confirmed that the matter will be heard in the Supreme Court on September 25.
