Allahabad: Targeting Union Home Minister
P Chidambaram on the 2G issue, BJP on Friday demanded that he
should either resign or be sacked and his alleged role in the
scam be investigated by the CBI.
Coming down heavily on Chidambaram, senior BJP leader
Murli Manohar Joshi said, "The government must remember that
he was the Finance Minister when spectrum was allocated in a
non-transparent manner, which had deprived the exchequer of a
staggering sum and that too at a time when the country was
badly in need of greater revenue generation.
"All this could not have been possible without
Chidambaram`s tacit approval," he said, adding that while many
high-profile politicians are now in jail, "we are of the view
that many more heads would roll if the matter is probed
Questioning Chidambaram`s performance as Home
Minister, the BJP leader said, "The Congress-led UPA
government would do well to get rid of Chidambaram who has
been a disaster as the country`s Home Minister as well. He
messed up the Telangana affair.
"He put the country in an embarrassing position before
the world by providing a botched up most wanted list to
Pakistan. He should either resign, or be dismissed and his
role in the irregularities in 2G scam and the
recently-unearthed oil scam in Krishna Godavari basin be
investigated by the CBI", the former Union Minister said.
The former BJP president also claimed that the Centre
was trying to "scuttle" tabling of the CAG report on the "oil
scam" in Parliament and demanded that it should be put before
the House "as soon as the Monsoon Session commences, so that
the truth comes out in the open".
