Chidambaram in MHA panel Standing Committee and FIR against him constitute #ConflictOfInterest

Citing the Delhi Police registration of First Information Report (FIR) on terrorist Ishrat Jehan documents destroying case, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy filed complaints to the Lok Sabha (LS) Speaker and Rajya Sabha (RS) Chairman for removing Congress leader P Chidambaram (PC) from Chairmanship of Home Ministry Standing Committee of Parliament.

There is already a provision in the Rules of Parliament that those who have conflict of interest cannot be Chairman or Member of Standing Committee.
– Dr. Subramanian Swamy

In two separate complaints to the LS Speaker Sumitra Mahajan and RS Chairperson Hamid Ansari, Swamy said Chidambaram cannot continue as Chairman of the Home Ministry panel, as the complainant is Home Ministry itself on the case and the former Home Minister is the main culprit in the destruction of documents.

Terming this as a serious conflict of interest issue, Swamy said that after Delhi Police registration of FIR, Chidambaram cannot hold the Chairmanship of the Home Ministry panel. As a custom, leaders from Opposition parties are nominated for the Chairmanship of Home Ministry panel and some other panels such as the Public Accounts Committee (PAC).

“I write this letter to draw your attention to the fact that the Ministry of Home Affairs acting as a Complainant has filed a Criminal Complaint with the Delhi Police regarding the fraud, forgery and or disappearance of papers concerning the encounter death in the Ishrat Jehan incident. For the purpose of investigation of this cognizable offence, persons who managed the key positions in the Ministry of Home Affairs during UPA 2009-2012 will be questioned.”

“P Chidambaram was the Minister for Home Affairs during this period and he has recently been appointed with your approval and on nomination as the Chairman of the Standing Committee for the Ministry of Home Affairs. Hence a serious issue of conflict of interest arises in this matter and the proper ethical step would be to ask Chidambaram to step down from the Chairmanship of the said Standing Committee till further notice depending on how the investigation/ charge sheet proceeds and who will be found it for inclusion in the charge sheet,” said Swamy in the letters to Lok Sabha Speaker and Rajya Sabha Chairman, citing concerned provisions.

  1. He always smiling . This adds to his personality. He is death nail Corrupt Congress. He makes congress chamachas here go green with envy.

  2. Swamy is a senile rabble rouser. Show me one thing he has achieved in his life. He is a frustrated old man who is bitter about everything. He has perverted intelligence and none of his words have any substance. He needs a knock on his head to put his brain straight.

  3. If P.Chidambaram has any shame left he should forth with quit the posts of chairman of Standing committees of the departments in Parliament. Or else he should be forced out. My salutations to Dr Swamy. Regards, Ganesh.

  4. Salute to Dr.Swamy’s commitment and energy. If only wee had 50 more Dr. Swamy’s many things would be substantially different
