The reports of the CBI Director Shri Ranjit Sinha meeting a number of persons who were being investigated by the agency at his residence, raises disturbing questions. Some persons were charge-sheeted by the agency and some have dubious antecedents. It is highly improper and irregular for the head of the premier investigating agency to be meeting such persons and that too at his residence. There has to be a high level probe into the matter and suitable action taken thereafter.
It is surprising that the CBI has not investigated this aspect of the 2G spectrum case. The Prime Minister’s related efforts at distancing himself from the affair have also been exposed. The Prime Minister cannot absolve himself of his responsibility in the matter. The Polit Bureau demands that the role of the PMO is specifically enquired into by the CBI. The Joint Parliamentary Committee should summon both the Prime Minister and A. Raja to testify.
The explanation that it is an inter-ministerial note prepared with inputs from various ministries only underlines the authoritative nature of the conclusions... P Chidambaram has to take responsibility for his action and resign...
The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M), in the light of all this mounting evidence, demands a CBI investigation into the role of the then Finance Minister P. Chidambaram in the 2G spectrum case.
With this judgement of the Supreme Court, the Prime Minister and the government stand exposed to the charge that they are not concerned with ensuring the integrity of the CVC or fighting corruption in high places.
The Polit Bureau strongly criticised the UPA government for its refusal to accept a JPC enquiry into the 2G Spectrum affair. Though the minister, A Raja, was forced to resign after the CAG report on the scam, the UPA government continues to adopt a position which will hamper the investigation and bringing of the guilty to book.
