No strength in Kapil Sibal's defence: JD(U)
Patna: JD(U) spokesman Shivanand Tiwari Thursday
said there was "no substance or strength" in Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal's statement defending the 2G spectrum allocation
"There is no strength in Kapi Sibal's defence on the
issue," Tiwari told reporters here.
Earlier, Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal dismissed the view
that the Supreme Court's judgement cancelling 122 2G licences
was an indictment.
He said the government will move forward in the issue after regulator TRAI make its recommendations.
"There is no indictment of the Prime Minister or the then
Finance Minister (P Chidambaram) in the Supreme Court's
judgement. If there is any indictment it is the 2003 policy
(first-come, first-serve) of the NDA government and we only
followed it," Sibal told a press conference in Delhi after the
Supreme Court judgement on the issue.
Hailing the Supreme Court's verdict cancelling allocation
of 2G spectrum, Tiwari said "it proves beyond doubt that there
has been a mega-scam and irregularities in allocation."
The party spokesman said a detailed statement would be
given later after going through the verdict.
