BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, who was one of the petitioners on whose plea a CBI probe was ordered in 2G case, on Thursday said the government should immediately appeal in the Delhi High Court against the acquittal.

Former Telecom Minister and DMK leader A. Raja, his party colleague and Rajya Sabha MP Kanimozhi were on Thursday acquitted by a special CBI court in the 2G spectrum allocation scam cases.

“The government should appeal in the high court against acquittal of all the accused,” Mr. Swamy told PTI outside court premises.

Later, Mr. Swamy also tweeted saying the government must prove its bonafides by filing an immediate appeal in the High Court.

In the tweets, he also made a reference to former Tamil Nadu chief minister J. Jayalalithaa’s DA case in which she along with her close aide Sasikala Natarajan was acquitted by the Karnataka High Court. The acquittal was overruled this year by the Supreme Court.

“Congis and Allies celebrated JJ HC acquittal. Then in SC got deflated. Same will be here,” he said in the tweets.
