NEW DELHI: Submitting certified copies of documents to support his plea to make Home Minister P Chidambaram a party to the 2G spectrum case, Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy concluded recording his statement and evidence before a CBI court on Saturday.

Special CBI Judge O P Saini listed the matter for final arguments on January 21. Swamy has sought to make Chidambaram a party in the case, stating that he had taken a joint decision in 2008 with then Telecom Minister A Raja. He has alleged that Chidambaram and Raja were equally guilty of recommending spectrum prices based on 2001 rates.

“This evidence reveals the connivance, collusion and consent of then Finance Minister P Chidambaram in the decisions taken by the then Telecom Minister A Raja in the matter of fixing the price of spectrum licence and in the matter of permitting two companies which received the licences namely Swan and Unitech in dilution of shares even before roll out of their services,” Swamy said.

He also submitted evidence to support his stance that Chidambaram was also guilty of breach of trust in question of national security for not disclosing that Etisalat and Telenor were black listed by a Home Ministry advisory.

Swamy has alleged that Chidambaram allowed two accused telecom firms Swan Telecom and Unitech wireless to earn windfall profits by offloading their shares to Etisalat and Norway-based telenor, respectively, after getting the Unified Access Services Licenses (UASL).
