Statement of Dr. Subramanian Swamy on draft Report of the PAC

April 27, 2011.

Statement of Dr. Subramanian Swamy,

President of the Janata Party.

I fully endorse and welcome the draft Report of the Public Accounts Committee prepared under the Chairmanship of the former Union Minister Dr. Murli Manohar Joshi.

The principal conclusions of the draft PAC Report are –

(1) that the bureaucrats of the PMO failed to keep the Prime Minister in the loop on the process of decision making by the Ministry of Communications & IT; (2) the Finance Minister (Mr. P. Chidambaram) and the Telecom Minister (Mr. Raja) erroneously decided the price of Spectrum at the very low price of 2001, and that it is a complex subject and hence in future it should be left to the TRAI; (3) that the Government should cancel all the 2G licenses so far allotted to nine companies since January 10, 2008.

These three conclusions are what I had argued in the Supreme Court wherein I held the Prime Minister as a powerless person but not culpable in the 2G Scam; (2) that Mr. P. Chidambaram is as culpable in causing the loss to the nation of Rs.l.76 lakh crores as Mr. Raja was and who has already been indicted for and is in prison; (3) that all the 2G licenses should be cancelled forthwith and fresh auction be held for the same.
