New Delhi: It`s not just one, but a triple blow likely for the UPA government as after today`s order on deemed sanction to prosecute after four months, the Supreme Court in the next two days will deliver two more judgements. One will relate to the CBI questioning Union Home Minister P Chidambaram in the 2G scam, and the third relates to the Attorney General`s role in the same case.

Justice Ashok Ganguly`s retirement on 2 Feb has fast tracked all three judgements.

Authoritative sources told Zee News that that P Chidambaram was “happy to be questioned by the CBI” and had told senior leaders that it should have been done when the Finance Secretary was questioned.

With support from the Congress, P Chidambaram is unlikely to resign even if the court wants his role investigated. This was confirmed to Zee News by authoritative sources. The same sources pointed out that neither the PMO nor Chidambaram or even the Attorney General has received any notice from the SC.

The judgement in the case of the Home Minister was reserved on October 11 last year in plea in 2G case.

Sources, however, said that this judgement is a serious blow to the government as it questions the PMO`s 16 month delay in the case.
