Swamy tests waters in state,will fight polls

Janata Party president Subramaniam Swamy on Saturday said he would field candidates in the next year’s Gujarat Assembly elections

Janata Party president Subramaniam Swamy on Saturday said he would field candidates in the next year’s Gujarat Assembly elections,but declined to name the probable candidates or the numbers saying that “it will depend on the kind of people available”.

He also said he would register an FIR with CBI on November 28 on the issue of black money stashed in foreign countries that would help him obtain letter rogatory from a court and his organisation then can directly approach foreign countries to get details of the hidden funds. “After studying the laws on how to get details of black money stashed abroad,my organisation ‘Action Committee Against Corruption in India’ has decided to go to CBI office on November 28 and register an FIR on the issue,” Swamy told reporters.

“For filing of an FIR,we do not require names. We can only say that the unnamed persons have committed a crime against the country by stashing black money in foreign banks,” he said.

Swamy,who is also a complainant in the 2G scam and seeking prosecution of Union Home Minister P Chidambaram,also said that CBI would show him the file relating to 2G spectrum allocation on Tuesday.

On a question of alliance with the BJP during the assembly elections in Gujarat,Swamy said,“I am ready to have an alliance with the BJP,but it is the BJP which is not keen on it. We are even ready to merge our party with that party but they do not want this to happen.”
