Chidambaram given his nod for extra spectrum: Swamy

New Delhi, Sat, 21 Apr 2012 NI Wire

Janata Patrty President Subramanian Swamy has reiterated that Home Minister P. Chidambaram had given his nod for the allocation of extra spectrum to service providers even before they had fulfilled their roll out obligations, when he was Finance minister.

He kept the fact before the apex court bench of Justice G.S. Singhvi and Justice K.S. Radhakrishnan that the former communications minister A. Raja has been already charged for under pricing the spectrum and Chidambaram was party to Raja's decision to allocate extra spectrum even though the service providers had not fully utilised the spectrum that was already with them.

He said that this was sufficient for proceeding against Chidambaram as under the Prevention of Corruption Act, it was not incumbent upon him to prove a prima facie case of guilty mind against Chidambram as was held by the trial court while rejecting his (Swamy's) plea to make him a co-accused.

It is noted that Swamy has challenged the Special CBI court's verdict rejecting his plea to make Chidambram a co-accused in the 2G scam for his role in consenting for the issuance of 2G licences in 2008 at 2001 prices.
