Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

today alleged that leader as Minister presided over some of the biggest scams in the country as it mocked his claim that he would have resigned from his post had his Prime Minister insisted on demonetisation.

"It is absurd that he is making such remarks. He did not constitute a SIT on despite the Supreme Court's order. Some of the biggest scams like 2G and coal gate happened under his watch.



"He supported the zero loss theory in the coal scam. He lacks any moral right to make such assertion," its National Secretary Shrikant Sharma said.

In many ways, Chidambaram did not act as the Minister but "scam minister" during the UPA, he alleged.

It would be good if he supported the on its action against and corruption, he said.

Senior leader had yesterday said that had he been the Minister, he would have resigned from the post if the Prime Minister insisted on demonetisation.

The leader also took a dig at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, saying that he undertook a U-turn after rising to power as the face of an anti-corruption movement.

The person under whom he started the anti-corruption agitation is supporting Prime Minister on while he is opposing it, Sharma said.

"Now Kejriwal protects bureaucrats accused of corruption and his minister accused of having fake degrees," he said.
