2G: Swamy claims he has evidence against HM

Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy, who has filed an application seeking prosecution of home minister P Chidambaram in the 2G spectrum case, today claimed he had all evidence against him in the case.

"I have all evidence against Chidambaram in the 2G spectrum case," he said at a ABVP meeting here on 'the rise of students, corruption-free Kerala'. Yesterday, a Delhi court had reserved its order for Feb 4 on Swamy's plea seeking Chidambaram's prosecution in the case.

During the arguments, Swamy had said the evidence he had brought on court's record prima facie show that Chidambaram is equally culpable as former Telecom Minister A Raja, who is facing trial in the 2G spectrum allocation scam.

On the vexed Mullapperiyar Dam issue between Kerala and Tamil Nadu, Swamy opined that both the states should go in for out of court settlement. Swamy said DMK President M Karunanidhi had no moral right to state that the Supreme Court should decide on the issue as he had not implemented its order on raising the dam height when he was the Chief Minister.

The Mullaperiyar dam row has witnessed tension in border districts of Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Kerala is pressing for construction of a new dam at Mullaperiyar citing safety concerns over the 116-year-old reservoir, while Tamil Nadu has maintained that the dam is "as good as new" and accused Kerala of whipping up "fear psychosis" over the issue.
