New Delhi: CPI(M) Thursday said Prime Minister
Manmohan Singh owed an answer to the nation on the 2G spectrum scam against the backdrop of Supreme Court`s strong comments over his alleged inaction.

"This is unprecedented. The fact is that the highest court
of the country has asked such a question to the PM. This is
first time in the history of India that the Supreme Court has
asked PM to give an answer on such an issue," CPI(M) Polit Bureau member Brinda Karat said.
She wondered what were the "compulsions" for Singh that
he "kept silence" for the last two years and still he is
silent.
Asked if Singh should step down, the Rajya Sabha member
said, "the Prime Minister should answer to the Supreme court.
The whole country awaits PM`s answer."
