It says that allocation prices were decided and it was in his knowledge. Swamy wants the court to summon Chidambaram and establish his involvement and cross-examination for his role that how he agreed on the 2001 pricing.
Swamy has alleged that Chidambaram was aware regarding the Raja's action in fixing the prices of allocation and he should intervene for the national interests.
