Mumbai: Criticising Congress President
Sonia Gandhi for being "quiet" on the 2G spectrum scam, Shiv
Sena supremo Bal Thackeray on Friday hit out at Home Minister P
Chidambaram, saying he should resign immediately.
"The yuvraj of Congress (Rahul Gandhi) is very vocal
on the corruption by Mayawati. However, he is not saying
anything on the corruption by his own government," Thackeray
said in an editorial party mouthpiece `Samaana`.
"His mummy (Sonia Gandhi) is also quiet on the issue.
The Prime Minister is also not opening his mouth. The truth is
hidden in the silence," the Sena chief added.
Thackeray said if the Congress really welcomes the
Supreme Court decision, then not only Chidambarama but Prime
Minister Manmohan Singh should also resign on moral grounds.
"Congress cannot get away by blaming responsibility of
the world`s biggest scam on a minister," he said.
Referring to a note by Finance Minister Pranab
Mukherjee, Thackeray said, "had Chidambaram decided, the scam
would have been averted."
"If Chidambaram would have decided, the scam could
have been stopped. A letter in this regard was sent by the
finance ministry to the Prime Minister, isn`t that true?" he
