Proof against Chidambaram and Robert Vadra soon, says Subramanian Swamy

Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy, who has moved the Supreme Court in the 2G spectrum scam, said on Thursday that he would soon have enough evidence to make Union home minister P Chidambaram a co-accused.

He was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a talk that he delivered to students of DY Patil University’s Global Business School and Research Centre here.

Swamy told reporters he was waiting to inspect a crucial 2G spectrum file seized by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) two years ago, after which he would be ready to expose the involvement of Chidambaram and Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law, Robert Vadra, in the case.

“Vadra has substantial shares in a telecom company, which has benefited from the issuing of licences. Once I get access to the file, I will reveal the name of the company and also produce the evidence against Robert and even Congress supremo, Sonia Gandhi,” he said.

Swamy’s plea for access to a file relating to the Unified Access Services Licences (UASL) policy regarding sale of equity (lock-in period), that was seized by the CBI on October 22, 2009, was upheld by special CBI judge OP Saini early this week.

He said the anti-corruption movement launched by crusader Anna Hazare would not be enough to eradicate corruption from society.

“At this moment, the fight against corruption is being fought at three levels by Baba Ramdev, Anna Hazare and me. While Anna is fighting for a new law, I am pressing for prosecution of the corrupt within the ambit of the present laws,” he said.

Swamy saidHazare’s and Ramdev’s movements were popularising the fight against corruption and garnering public support for it.

Talking at Tilak Smarak Mandir, Swamy said the Action Committee Against Corruption headed by him would file a case with the CBI asking it to register a first information report (FIR) against ‘unknown persons’ who held illegal bank accounts in foreign banks before November 28.

He alleged at the function, organised by the Professionals against Corruption and Prabodhan Manch, that Chidambaram and Sonia Gandhi had amassed Rs50,000 crore and Rs1 lakh crore respectively in foreign banks.

He would use the law about “politically exposed persons” in Switzerland and the US to get the illegal accounts frozen, he asserted, adding that if the CBI refused to register the FIR, he would move the court.

He criticised the fiscal policies of the Central government and said that because of these, huge amounts of black money had been generated in the country. He criticised the policy of participatory notes and said the wrong policies of the government had “rigged the stock markets completely”.

While lauding the work of government agencies like the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) and the CBI, Swamy said a concentrated effort is being undertaken by some members of the Central government to defame these authorities.
