2G row: Singhvi meets Chidambaram

New Delhi: With Congress grappling with the controversy surrounding Finance Ministry's note on 2G spectrum allocation, AICC legal department chief Abhishek Singhvi on Wednesday met Home Minister P Chidambaram, who is in the eye of storm over the issue.

Singhvi's 45-minute meeting with the Home Minister has come at a time when the Government and Congress are busy fine tuning ways and means to defuse the political crisis.

Corporate Affairs Minister M Veerappa Moily had a meeting with Congress President Sonia Gandhi in the morning. However, there was no official word on what transpired at the meeting.

It also came on a day when the CBI told the Supreme Court that it was planning to file an FIR against DMK MP and former Telecom Minister Dayanidhi Maran in the 2G case.
