Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal today hit out at Opposition BJP for demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Home Minister P. Chidambaram by treating the argument of former telecom minister A. Raja in 2G scam case in the court as evidence against the government.

His comments came after BJP president Nitin Gadkari demanded resignation of Singh and Chidambaram stating that what Raja had said in court showed that the top leadership of the government was aware of all 2G transactions.
Raja told a Delhi court hearing the 2G case that Chidambaram, then Finance Minister, had told the Prime Minister that dilution of shares by 2G licencees to attract FDI did not not amount to sale of licence.
Sibal told a press conference it was 'unfortunate' that President of a national political party like BJP demanded resignation on the basis of arguments made by Raja in the court.
"He (Gadkari) should have consulted Arun Jaitley (senior BJP leader) or some other lawyer".

True, what applies to BJP, also applies to Congress; till the allegations are substantiated with irrefutable proof, it cannot become an evidence for Courts!
