Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee said last night that the Supreme Court’s order in the 2G Spectrum case was final and no appeal could be made against it.

“It is the apex court’s order and no appeal can be made against it. We have to study different implications of the Supreme Court’s judgement,” Mukherjee said at his south Kolkata residence shortly after his arrival from New Delhi.

Asked if any effort was being made to corner the Central government on this issue,Mukherjee said,“In a democracy,political parties will try to use this judgement to corner their opponent (government). This is natural.”

The Supreme Court on Thursday had quashed the grant of 122 UAS licences to 12 private companies. The Bench also held former telecom minister A Raja and his department guilty of “virtually gifting away an important national asset at throwaway prices”.
