As a united Opposition gunned for his resignation, both Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government on Thursday threw their weight behind Home Minister P Chidambaram, who is facing the heat after a “secret” note to the Prime Minister by Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee raised questions over his alleged role in the 2G spectrum allocation controversy.

Mukherjee had sent a note to Singh in March 2011 saying Chidambaram as then Finance Minister could have prevented the scam. An official Finance Ministry document has cast doubts over the role of Chidambaram, who was then finance minister, in the January 2008 decision of former telecom minister A Raja to issue 2G spectrum licences.

On March 25, 2011, Dr PGS Rao, Deputy Director in the Finance Ministry, sent an office memorandum to Vini Mahajan, Joint Secretary in the Prime Minister’s Office, regarding allocation and pricing of 2G spectrum. Mukherjee approved the note after personally inspecting the 11-page document.
