2G verdict: BJP demands Chidambaram‘s resignation
New Delhi: With the Supreme Court leaving it
to the trial court to decide on probe against Home Minister P
Chidambaram in 2G case, BJP on Thursday demanded his resignation
till the matter is settled.
"...He (Chidambaram) is fully involved in the entire scam
and he has two days` reprieve. But issue of probity in public
life demands that either Chidambaram puts in his papers on his
own, or if he refuses to do so, the Prime Minister must
recommend to the President to sack him him from the government
with immediate effect," BJP leader Balbir Punj said here.
When asked whether it is premature for the party to
demand the resignation of Chidambaram, who was the then
Finance Minister, Punj said if he is given a clean chit by the
trial court, he can return to the Union Cabinet.
Welcoming the apex court judgement, he said it has
confirmed what the country knew that 2G is one of the biggest
scams and all allocations made were "absolutely fraudelent and
not done on merit but on other considerations."
