The BJP on Tuesday demanded that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh clarify in Parliament his stand on the ISRO-Devas multimedia deal for S-band allocation, alleging that he was directly responsible for the anomalies as the Department of Space was headed by him.

“The Devas scam is bigger than the 2—G Spectrum scam.

We will raise the issue in Parliament next week. The Prime Minister is directly responsible for it as the Department of Space is under him. He should give a clarification in Parliament,” deputy leader of the BJP in Lok Sabha Gopinath Munde told reporters.

The BJP Parliamentary Party meeting discussed the issue and took the decision that the matter should be raised in the House next week.
