BJP questions govt seeking Prez reference on 2G from ‘94-2007

BJP questioned the move of the UPA government seeking Presidential Reference on whether telecom licences granted between 1994 and 2007 on first-come-first-served basis be treated as illegal.

New Delhi: BJP on Thursday questioned the move of
the UPA government seeking Presidential Reference on whether
telecom licences granted between 1994 and 2007 on
first-come-first-served basis be treated as illegal, saying 2G
decisions taken during NDA rule were as per laid down norms
and principles.

"Inspite of 2G decisions being clearly above board,
clearly as per norms and principles, it is also being made
part of the reference," party spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman
said here.

The Presidential Reference raises a question whether
telecom licences granted in 1994, 2001, 2003 and 2007 on
first-come-first-serve basis be treated as illegal in wake of
the February 2 judgement.

"...this shows how an indecisive government is seeking
the advisory jurisdiction of the Supreme Court even on matters
which have to be executive decisions only," she said.
