BJP on Thursday questioned the move of the UPA government seeking Presidential Reference on whether telecom licences granted between 1994 and 2007 on first-come-first-served basis be treated as illegal, saying 2G decisions taken during NDA rule were as per laid down norms and principles.


"Inspite of 2G decisions being clearly above board, clearly as per norms and principles, it is also being made part of the reference," party spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said in New Delhi.

The Presidential Reference raises a question whether telecom licences granted in 1994, 2001, 2003 and 2007 on first-come-first-serve basis be treated as illegal in wake of the February 2 judgement.

"...this shows how an indecisive government is seeking the advisory jurisdiction of the Supreme Court even on matters which have to be executive decisions only," she said.
