2G order is wrong; will move SC: Swamy
New Delhi: Reacting strongly to the Special CBI Court order giving clean chit to Home Minister P Chidambaram in 2G scam case, Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy - the petitioner in the case - said he was “surprised” but not “disappointed”.
Swamy further said he will move the Supreme Court against the order.
While describing Special CBI Judge OP Saini as a "good man", the petitioner said the "order is bad".
“The 2G order is wrong. This order deserves to be reserved. I will certainly appeal against it,” he said talking to a private new channel. “I have the prima face evidence against Chidambaram’s culpability in 2G scam. I have a very very strong case against him,” he added.
"I will appeal against this order in Supreme Court. The order is bad because the judge has in his order agreed that Chidambaram and A Raja (former telecom minister) had jointly decided to follow the 2001 policy of first-come first-serve for selling spectrum," he told reporters.
"This is nothing new for me... This is not the first time that a petition has been dismissed," he said.
A special CBI court on Saturday dismissed a petition by Swamy to make Chidambaram an accused in the 2G spectrum allocation case.
