A day after Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy moved the Supreme Court against the trial court order giving clean chit to P Chidambaram, another petition was today filed seeking CBI probe against the minister for his alleged role in the 2G spectrum scam.
The application, filed by an NGO Centre for Public Interest Litigation, submits that a "thorough investigation" is required to probe the role of Chidambaram who was the Finance Minister when spectrum was allocated to telecom companies during the tenure of former Telecom Minister A Raja- Does these litigation affect his performance ?
Catching P C is very difficult, as he has kept the paperwork clean. There has been no proof or even allegation levelled against him on disproportionate wealth also. Subramaniam Swamy himself is not known to be great reformist as such, by the people in general, and anytime P Chidambaram has better and effective image.
From all this, the campaign by Subramaniam Swami seems to be more of a political campaign than the anti-corruption campaign, and mainly targeting P Chidambaram.
