Congress on Monday dismissed any threat to the UPA coalition in the wake of DMK MP Kanimozhi being made an accused in the 2G case suggesting the government had 'no role, no control' over CBI investigation.
"The government is fully stable. Since 2004 when UPA came to power, there have been illusions about its instability and some people have reached the evening of their lives under such an illusion", party spokesman Manish Tewari told reporters.
Replying to a volley of questions on the issue, Tewari suggested the government has neither any role nor any control over the developments taking place in the investigations taking place in 2G spectrum scam.
"Do you think in the Supreme Court-monitored investigation, CBI would have done anything but as per facts of the matter"? "The draft chargesheet is also being scrutinised by the Supreme Court and the (appointment of the) Public Prosecutor is also being scrutinised by the court. With such stringent monitoring, could CBI have deviated even an iota from the fact?", said Tewari.
He was speaking to reporters hours after the DMK supremo and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi evaded questions about DMK planning to quit the UPA government after his daughter Kanimozhi was named by CBI in the 2G case.
DMK is the third largest constitutent of UPA after Congress and Trinamool Congress and has 18 members in the Lok Sabha.
