New Delhi: CPI on Saturday said it would examine
the Delhi court order dismissing a plea to make Home Minister
P Chidambaram a co-accused in the 2G scam case, but noted that
the recent other court verdicts would have "far-reaching
implications" on the government`s collective functioning.

The Supreme Court order cancelling 122 2G licenses and
today`s order by the lower court would have "far-reaching
implications on the collective functioning of the Cabinet and
individual responsibility of concerned Ministers", CPI
National Secretary D Raja said here.

Noting that these orders could become "precedents" for
the future, he said "ethical and moral questions" could be
raised with respect to the role of Chidambaram, the then
Finance Minister, from documents like the March 25 note of the
Finance Ministry which were in the public domain.
The note by Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee had
suggested that Chidambaram could have prevented the scam by
insisting on auction of spectrum.
