A Delhi court Saturday posted for July 6 an application filed by Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy seeking the written statement given by former telecom minister A. Raja to Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) in the 2G spectrum allocation case.
Approaching Special CBI Judge O.P. Saini, who is trying the 2G case, Swamy, in his application, said: “In order to ensure that all aspects of the case are examined, actual culprits may be booked, tried and punished it is necessary to summon the complete written statement filed by A Raja before the JPC.”
“It has come to the knowledge of the complainant (Swamy) that the written statement gives a detailed account of the official meetings held between the prime minister, the finance minister and the accused in December 2007 and January 2008 to formulate and finalise the rules and regulations for the 2G spectrum allocation by the then government,” Swamy said in the application.
Apart from Raja’s April 22 written statement to JPC chairman P.C. Chacko, Swamy also sought the draft report of the JPC, the Public Accounts Committee and also the statements of Shyamala Shukla, the then director of infrastructure and Sindhushree Khullar, the then additional secretary, economic affairs department, to ascertain the truth.
