New Delhi: An affidavit on behalf of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was filed in the Supreme Court on Saturday which rejected the charge of inaction on the part of his office in dealing with the request of sanction for prosecution of former Telecom Minister A Raja in the 2G spectrum issue.
In an 11-page affidavit, filed through Director, PMO, V Vidyawati, it was stated that there was no inaction on the part of the PMO on the complaint filed by Janata Party President Subramanium Swamy seeking the sanction for prosecution of Raja.
All the letters written by Janata Party President Subramanium Swamy have been given serious consideration by the PMO, said the 11-page affidavit.
Various letters written by Swamy — from the first in November 29, 2008 to the last in October 2010 — have been dealt with in accordance with the procedure in the PMO, the affidavit said.
Speaking to CNN-IBN, Subramaniam Swamy said the affidavit vindicates his stand. “I am satisfied that the Prime Minister has confirmed the stand that I had taken in court,” he said.
