CPI (M) says the business house was the biggest beneficiary in oil-for-food scam


Ahmedabad: Claiming that Reliance was one of the biggest beneficiaries in the Iraqi oil-for-food programme, the CPI(M) on Saturday demanded that government institute a probe into the issue.

“It (Reliance) has got the maximum number of oil vouchers. It has paid the maximum surcharge. But no investigation has been carried out against it. I fail to understand why,” CPI(M) General Secretary Prakash Karat told reporters here.

He said that Reliance was one of the four parties named by the UN-sponsored Volcker Committee, which went into Iraq’s oil-for-food scam during Saddam Hussain’s regime, and the firm was the biggest beneficiary.

“We will demand in Parliament that investigations should be carried out against Reliance,” the CPI(M) general secretary said.

As per the terms of reference of Justice R S Pathak committee, the probe was limited to the role of Natwar Singh and the Congress, Karat said hinting that other beneficiaries including Reliance were outside the purview of the investigation.

“I do not understand why no investigation is being carried out against the oil company,” Karat said. “Even the Congress and the BJP are both silent on the issue.”
