BJP targets PM over Chidambaram�s role

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Sept 23 � BJP today targeted Prime Minister Manmohan Singh after he reposed faith in Home Minister P Chidambaram who is facing opposition heat in 2G Spectrum case, asking whether he was being �shielded� over fears of �embers of the fire� reaching the PMO, reports PTI.

Congress on its part hit out at BJP accusing the main opposition party of wanting to fish in troubled waters and asked it not to �jump the gun� since the 2G issue is already under a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe.

As the two parties were locked in a slugfest over the Finance Ministry note to the PMO on the stand taken by Chidambaram in 2G spectrum allocation when he was the Finance Minister, the BJP alleged his �culpability� was evident and demanded a fair investigation into his role.

Stepping up BJP�s attack on Chidamabram while pressing for his resignation, the party�s Chief spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad wondered how the Prime Minister has expressed �full confidence� in him without going into the merits of the case in the wake of the new evidence.
