2G scam: Rahul Gandhi says PM not in embarrassing position

New Delhi, Fri, 19 Nov 2010 ANI

New Delhi, Nov 19 (ANI): Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi on Friday said the Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, is not in an embarrassing position following the Supreme Court's observation on the 2G spectrum allotment case.


Gandhi's comments came a day after AICC General Secretary Janardan Dwivedi came out in support of the Prime Minister, saying the party had stood, is standing and will stand" by him and that "in the whole world, no one doubts the integrity of our Prime Minister.


The Supreme Court on Thursday had asked for an affidavit to be filed by Saturday on behalf of the Prime Minister, to explain why he took close to a year to respond to a request for the prosecution of former Telecom Minister A Raja over the 2G scam.


Delivering the order, the court said, "It's an extremely serious matter, we must know what has been kept back."


The apex court has asked for details of communication between the PMO and Janata Party President and former Law Minister Subramaniam Swamy, who had sought sanction for the prosecution of Raja.


Earlier on Tuesday, the apex court had asked the government to explain why the Prime Minister took eleven months to take a decision on sanctioning of prosecution of Raja in the controversial 2G spectrum allocation issue.


Raja was forced to resign Sunday night under considerable pressure from the Congress, which continues to be attacked in Parliament by the Opposition on corruption charges. (ANI)
