New Delhi, Feb 2: The Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) Thursday demanded the resignation of cabinet minister Kapil Sibal after the Supreme Court ordered the cancellation of 2G telecom licences.
“The judgment is a strong indictment of the UPA government and in particular the present telecom minister (Sibal) who has consistently refused to cancel the licences and held that there has been no revenue loss,” it said. “Kapil Sibal should resign forthwith.”
The Supreme Court Thursday ordered the cancellation of 122 2G licences given to telecom companies, holding them unconstitutional.
“In the light of the judgment, the prime minister is duty bound to break his silence and answer to the country. The CPI-M demands that the government immediately implement the judgment.”
