PM defend Chidambaram over 2G controversy case.

chidambaramOn Saturday, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh backed Home Minister P. Chidambaram, who is facing escalating attacks from some quarters, in the conflict of interest controversy.

Singh said in response to the controversy over the Home Minister that “His (Chidambaram) statement that he is not guilty of the type of blame that is being sought to be placed on his shoulder is there for anybody to see.”

The government also shoots to the defence of Chidambaram in the 2G case, in which Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy deposed before a trial court in Delhi on Saturday, charging the Home Minister of being part of the 2G scam.

The government said that Swamy had said nothing new in court and that all such claiming had already been illuminate by Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal on December 10.

According to the sources, Chidambaram was confident that there was nothing unfavourable against him in the controversy in which he is supposed to have ordered the withdrawal of criminal cases registered by the Delhi Police against his ex-client, hotelier SP Gupta.

On the other hand, Anna Hazare, too, sought to intention Chidambaram, saying he would have been in jail had the Jan Lokpal Bill been passed.
