Tirunelveli: On a day when he got a clean
chit from a Delhi court in 2G spectrum case, Union Home
Minister P Chidambaram tonight chose to keep mum on the issue.
Travelling from Delhi after the verdict, Chidambaram came
here to address a public meeting to support early
commissioning of the Koodankulam nuclear power project where
he made no reference to the court order that came as a huge
relief to him and the UPA government.
At the meeting, Chidambaram spoke only about the
controversial Indo-Russian nuclear power project, which has
run into trouble following continuing protests for the last
several months by anti-nuclear agitators and locals demanding
its scrapping citing safety concerns.
Earlier in the day, a Delhi court rejected a plea to make
Chidambaram an accused in the 2G case holding that he did not
indulge in any criminal conspiracy or derived any pecuniary
advantage from the decisions taken with former Telecom
Minister A Raja.
