Dr. Subramanian Swamy has referred to the 2G scam as the “biggest scam in the world” and said how he intended bringing back the money taken by Sonia Gandhi. “Attach their property. Once she gets convicted, I’ll file another case, and get her property attached. Her property all over the world will be attached”, said Dr. Swamy in an exclusive interview with Indiawires.
The Janata Party President spoke of how the Indian government could have been benefitted, if the auction of 2G licences had been conducted. The country would have got Rs. 1Lakh 76000Crore. Instead, those who benifitted on the sly got a bribe of Rs. 60,000 cr.
When asked about the alleged manipulation done by the Electronic Voting Machines, Dr. Swamy said that the court was completely convinced with the case filed by him and has permitted the way suggested by him. In what can be considered as multiple rays of hope for voters, Dr. Swamy said, “According to the Information Technology Act, Section 11, when users punch EVM, they must mandatorily be provided with a receipt that acknowledges the vote cast for the specific candidate, with serial number. This receipt must be cast into a ballot box. There for in case of any discrepancy, the paper slips must be used for recounting, and not the data in the EVM. The Election Commission has also agreed to this and will submit their report on December 14, 2011.”
