New Delhi: The Patiala House Court is all set to pronounce its verdict on Saturday whether Union Home Minister P Chidambaram should be made a co-accused in the multi-crore 2G spectrum allocation scam or not.

Earlier on Thursday, the Supreme Court had asked the trial court to give a verdict on Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy’s plea for making P Chidambaram a co-accused in the scam. On the same day, the court had cancelled 122 radiowave licences granted during the tenure of jailed former Telecom Minister A Raja. The Apex Court had also refused to appoint a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to help the court look into the CBI investigations. Instead, the Court sought the assistance of Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) to monitor the investigations.

The Judgments were pronounced by a bench comprising Justices GS Singhvi and AK Ganguly.

Swamy in his plea pointed out that there are enough evidences showing that the decision regarding pricing of spectrum was taken jointly by the then Finance Minister P Chidambaram and former Telecom Minister A Raja. A Finance Ministry note to the PMO signed by Pranab Mukherjee was also submitted by him in the court. It was stated that the scam could have been averted by Chidambaram.
However, the Centre and the CBI had strongly opposed any probe against Chidambaram by saying that Chidambaram was not in direct communication with Raja in determining the spectrum prices.

Swamy had also said there are documents to show that Raja and Chidambaram met four times on the issue and had a meeting of minds in the commission of the offences.
