New Delhi, Feb 01 (Agencies): Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sushma Swaraj on Tuesday said she would not file an affidavit on CVC issue in the Supreme Court, stating there was "no dispute on facts now".

Sushma’s decision comes on the back of a statement by the Home Minister P Chidambaram, saying that the Palmolein case against P J Thomas was discussed by the CVC selection panel.

"The Home Minister has now admitted that I had raised the Palmolein case in the meeting and recorded my disagreement precisely for this reason," Swaraj, the Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha, who was on the selection panel, said on Twitter.

"Now there is no dispute on facts. Therefore, there is no need for my affidavit," she said.

Attorney General G E Vahanavati had stated in the Supreme Court last week that the panel for CVC, comprising the Prime Minister, Home Minister and Leader of Opposition, had not been apprised of the case against Thomas.

This has prompted Swaraj to say that she will file an affidavit in the matter as the government was "misleading" the apex court.
