Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy on Saturday told the special court hearing the 2G spectrum cases that he intended filing a complaint on the Aircel-Maxis deal.

Another complaint filed by him against the former Telecom Minister, A. Raja, has already been proceeding in the court.

Dr. Swamy told Special Judge O. P. Saini that his additional complaint on the Aircel-Maxis deal was different from the matter under CBI probe; it would be “something related to the Foreign Investment Promotion Board.”

Dr. Swamy, who had sought adjournment on the last date of hearing in May, again sought adjournment.

He said his appeal against Mr. Saini's order, dismissing his plea to summon Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram as a co-accused in his case against Mr. Raja, was pending in the Supreme Court, and he was awaiting its order.

Mr. Saini has now posted hearing of Dr. Swamy's original complaint to August 25.

The controversial and conspiratorial 'First-Come-First-Served' policy in 2G Spectrum was initiated by BJP with which Dr.Subramaniam Swamy is bent over backwards to merge his Janata Party now. The FCFS blunder was continued faithfully by UPA headed by an eminent economist Mr.Manmohan Sigh. Thus the seeds of corruption were sown by BJP and the plant was nourished by Indian National Congress. Mr.A.Raja was a junior cabinet minister and an amateur in Delhi politics who could not have superseded all the ministries concerned. If at all Dr.Swamy is true to his conscience he would have demanded a comprehensive inquiry,review and auctioning a precious natural resource. Instead he is particular about his political foes in Tamil Nadu. The CBI too has submitted only an edited version of Raida tapes in the Supreme Court. Selected approach towards corruption is more corruptible than corruption itself.
