New Delhi, Feb 2 : With the Supreme Court leaving it to the trial court to decide on probe against Home Minister P Chidambaram in 2G case, BJP today demanded his resignation till the matter is settled.
“...He (Chidambaram) is fully involved in the entire scam and he has two days' reprieve. But issue of probity in public life demands that either Chidambaram puts in his papers on his own, or if he refuses to do so, the Prime Minister must recommend to the President to sack him him from the government with immediate effect,” BJP leader Balbir Punj said here.
When asked whether it is premature for the party to demand the resignation of Chidambaram, who was the then Finance Minister, Punj said if he is given a clean chit by the trial court, he can return to the Union Cabinet.
Welcoming the apex court judgement, he said it has confirmed what the country knew that 2G is one of the biggest scams and all allocations made were “absolutely fraudelent and not done on merit but on other considerations.”
