New Delhi, Nov 22: With main opposition BJP boycotting Home Minister P Chidambaram, the CPI(M) today said it was never in favour of targeting individuals but wanted everyone involved in the 2G scam to be investigated.
“We have never targeted individuals or have favoured boycott of anyone. Our target is only the policies or acts of omission and commission,” CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury told reporters here.
He was responding to a question about the Left's stand on the BJP boycotting Chidambaram alleging his involvement in the 2G spectrum allocation scandal as then finance minister.
“But everybody involved in the 2G scam, even if it goes up to the level of the Prime Minister, should be investigated, their criminality established and action should follow. And the action should be such that it serves as a deterrent,” he said.
He, however, added, “We are always against boycotting or targeting any individual.”
Yechury said the Joint Parliamentary Committee, of which he is a member, was meeting on the issue and would arrive at a conclusion.
