Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy on Saturday demanded the resignation of union home minister P Chidambaram claiming he had decided the price of 2G spectrum with former telecom minister A Raja.

Addressing a press conference, he said he had submitted relevant documents to the court that bore signatures of both the ministers.

Swamy said telecom minister Kapil Sibal was unnecessarily defending Chidambaram, a reference to Sibal's press conference in Delhi on Saturday when he rejected all allegations against Chidambaram.

He supported BJP’s stand of boycotting Chidambaram in parliament.

He also claimed that the Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence Bill,2011 was prepared on the dictates of Sonia Gandhi by National Advisory Council.

The Bill would divide the country in several parts and groups as it provides remedies only to the minorities, he alleged.
