Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy has said here that he will expose another major scam next week.

Without elaborating on his proposed expose, Mr. Swamy said in the same breath “I will not leave P. Chidambaram (Union Finance Minister) though he got a reprieve from a two judge bench of the Supreme Court which dismissed his review petition in the 2 G scam. I will catch Chidambaram in a curative petition before the general elections”, he said delivering a lecture on foreign direct investment (FDI) and corruption which was organised by Rajasthani Graduates Assocaition on Saturday.

Asserting that Mr. Chidambaram was fit to be his “target practice”, Mr. Swamy said he did not expect the former to contest the elections as the Congress would like to get relieved of him.

He added that he will not spare anyone in corruption cases but said he will make Robert Vadra an exception because it would be to the advantage of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi if he initiated legal action against him for irregularities.

The relationship between Mr. Vadra and his mother-in-law were very strained, he alleged.

Discussing the dangers of FDI, he said they were on account of capital infusion by foreign players like Walmart after borrowing funds in their countries at an interest rate of 2 per cent and exploiting cheap labour here to outwit domestic investors who paid interest as high as 12 to 18 per cent. If a level playing field was ensured, he said the domestic investors would drive away their foreign competitors.
