Should have included Sonia Gandhi in the list, Subramaniam Swamy to Team Anna

Pune, May 27 (ANI): Team Anna should have included Congress chief Sonia Gandhi in their list of tainted ministers, 2-G scam petitioner Subramanian Swamy said on Sunday.

Swamy claimed that since Sonia Gandhi's permission was taken on every important government decision, Hazare aides should have included her name in the list.

"Why did they leave out Sonia Gandhi? Nothing happens without Sonia Gandhi's permission. She has got a cabinet rank as chairman of the National Advisory Council (NAC). Her opinion is taken on every issue," Swamy told reporters here.

Further, he said Team Anna should have approached the police and filed a First Information Report (FIR) against the listed ministers.

"Documents are not new. It had been better if Anna Hazare and his aides would have approached a police station and registered a FIR and demanded investigation," Swamy added.

Hazare aides have sought probe by a Special Investigation Team (SIT), consisting of former judges, within six months against 15 cabinet ministers including Prime Minister Manmohan Singh till July 24. (ANI)
