Palaniappan Chidambaram ( P chidambaram) , home minister of India is back in news. No this time he is not in news for some bomb blast in the country . He is in news for 2G Spectrum Scam!!!!!!!. The mother of all scams ,2g scam is scam which made government loose 1,70,000 Crores of Money due to policy of selling spectrum at price fixed in 2001 instead of going for auction which would have made government earn above said amount.
The much debated , published scam is considered to be big factor in DMK loosing state assembly elections . A RAja , Kanimozhi and few of corporate employees (not their bosses) are in tihar jail in 2g spectrum case.
Now RTI application filed by RTI activist Vivek Garg makes way for chidambaram to join compnay of kanimozhi , a raja. All depends on whether UPA-2 allows their one of many man to be grilled by CBI or not.
According to note send by finance minister Mr Pranab Mukherjee to PMO , FM office says that then finance ministry could have stop the allocation of the spectrum even if telecom ministry would have passed it. FM office could have made DOT cancel the spectrum allocation.
Obviously congress is supporting and standing behind chidambaram . Law Minister Mr Salma Khurshid has called it unfair to blame chidambaram , while ambika soni has claimed that there is no rift between congress people over chidambaram .
BJP on other hand has asked for chidambaram’s resignation , while DMK claims that A Raja is vindicated. Now consider this , suppose A is going to loot in your office and he comes to meet you and discloses his plan. You remain mum and he does the loot. Now after few years your office comes to know that A did the loot and you neither stopped him nor conveyed to authority. Now does that vindicate A or make both of you guilty?. Should police inquiry on whether you remained silent because you got your cut from a , or should police let both of you off?…
Personally I believe CBI should inquire into whether chidambaram himself through his trust or other means , was benefited out of 2g spectrum ..and can CBI conduct fair inquiry when their boss himself is accused?. For fair inquiry chidambaram has to resign.
My Question of the day is “Should Chidambaram Resign And CBI Conduct Inquiry On Him In 2G Scam?”. I invite all to answer the question by commenting on the post.
