New Delhi: With the Supreme Court leaving it to the trial court to decide on probe against Home Minister P Chidambaram in 2G case, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday demanded Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s point of view on the former finance minister.
Speaking to the reporters BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said that the party would like to ask the Prime Minister that would he now take some action against Chidambaram or will he continue to favour him despite Supreme Court’s 2G verdict.
“Chidambaram has no moral right to continue and should resign immediately,” Prasad said.
Hitting out at the Congress led government at the Centre, the BJP leader said that entire credibility of this government has shattered and Manmohan Singh’s government is the most corrupt government in the history of India.
Vindicated with SC verdict of cancellation of 122 2G telecom licences granted during the tenure of former telecom minister A Raja in 2008, Prasad took a dig at the prime minister saying that Dr Singh had defended A Raja in Parliament and assured of following all rules, but Supreme Court has found massive irregularities in the 2G case.
“It is time that the prime minister should take accountability,” the BJP leader demanded.
Targeting UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Prasad said that she has been criticising the opposition party in election rallies, but her own government has been accused of massive irregularities now.
“We will demand reply from Sonia Gandhi,” Prasad said.
