BJP too demands Chidambaram’s ouster

The BJP too has asked for the resignation of Home Minister Chidambaram, after media reports that jailed telecom minister A Raja claimed that he split the loot from the 2G scam with Chidambaram.

“If two people have taken money and only one is the in jail, he will of course talk.. Why is Mr Chidambaram continuing as the home minister of the country,” Prakash Javdekar, BJP spokesperson said.

The Sunday Guardian, edited by noted journalist MJ Akbar, had brought out a report on Sunday claiming that Raja had said that a larger share of the loot from the 2G spectrum scam had gone to the home minister P Chidambaram.

Jayalalitha, chief minister of Tamil Nadu, had also asked for Chidambaram to resign and fight elections once again alleging that he had committed fraud in the election process.
