Opposition welcomes DMK MP Kanimozhi's arrest

New Delhi: The Opposition on Friday welcomed the CBI special court's decision ordering the arrest of DMK MP Kanimozhi in the 2G scam spectrum case.

"These arrests and actions have been possible only because the Supreme Court is monitoring the inquiry," said BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar.

He also added, "This is the only UPA regime where government controlled inquiries will produce no results."
Javadekar said, "If we want effective results, the only way is Supreme Court because government monitored agencies do not perform. The enquiries about other scams including CWG then only will we be getting justice."

Communist Party of India (CPI) Secretary D Raja said, "Congress stands thoroughly exposed."

Kanimozhi and Kalaignar TV MD and CEO Sharad Kumar were arrested after a Special Central Bureau of Investigating (CBI) court dismissed the bail petition of Kanimozhi and Sharad Kumar in the case following which they were taken into custody.

While rejecting their bail petition Judge OP Saini ordered their "forthwith" arrest and directed the duo to appear before it at 10 am on Saturday. Kanimozhi and Kumar will be lodged in Delhi's Tihar jail.
