Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy on Friday demanded the resignation of Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram for the “fiasco” in the list of 50 ‘most wanted persons' sent to Pakistan.

In a press release, he said: “It is the responsibility of every Minister to ensure that information supplied from various departments are up-to-date and current.” Therefore, Mr. Chidambaram should not put the blame on the CBI for the lapse.

“Mr. Chidambaram must resign forthwith but if he does not, the Prime Minister should sack him immediately,” he said.
