09/29/2011 New Delhi Topstory It's been a week of all-nighters for the Congress as
the ruling party tries to find a way to wriggle out of
the 2G note mess. Top-level huddles continue - late
last night, three ministers met Finance Minister
Pranab Mukherjee, hours after he wrote an
explanation to the Prime Minister detailing the hows and whys of the controversial note sent out
from his ministry on the allocation of spectrum
earlier this year. The note that has wrought the
tempest was sent in March to Dr Manmohan Singh's
office and suggests that when India's telecom scam
unfolded in 2008, P Chidambaram, who was then Finance Minister, could have over-ruled A Raja and
insisted that valuable spectrum be auctioned. Mr
Raja was Telecom Minister at the time, and is now in
jail for engineering the telecom or 2G scam, namedafter the frequency involved. Ever since the note
became public last week, there have been demands
for Home Minister P Chidambaram's resignation.
There have also been loud whispers about a
veritable war between two of the UPA's senior-
most ministers - Mr Chidambaram and Mr Mukherjee.
