Swamy Terms 2G Verdict ‘Very Bad Judgement’


New Delhi: Subramaniam Swamy lashes out heavily on CBI court judgement in 2G spectrum allocation scam which acquitted all the seventeen accused including former Telecom Minister A Raja and DMK MP Kanimozhi. Swamy condemned the decision and said this verdict is an example of government controlling the lower judiciary.

“Judge Saini’s judgement is a very bad judgement and it has to be appealed. Such things do happen and that is why we have three layers of courts,” said Swamy while speaking to the reporters in New Delhi.

Swamy mentioned that he was the first to file a complaint against 2G scam in Tees Hazari court but the UPA government did not allow him to prosecute the matter. He condemned the verdict by judge Saini and also slammed former Attorney General Mukul Rohtagi.

“Former Attorney General Mr Mukul Rohtagi welcomed the judgement. He was the advocate for many accused including Unitech. Such people should not be made law officers because a wrong message will go that government is not serious on corruption,” he said.

Swamy said that his government is strict on corruption and asked Prime Minister to set up special teams and keep aside those who are not keen on fighting corruption including some in his own party. He denied that this veredict is a setback while saying this was an aberration.

“This is not a setback at all. I will say this is an aberration because law officers were not serious about fighting corruption and I would want Prime Minister to take a lesson from this and set up a war like council to fight corruption,” said Swamy.
