Winding up of Phukan panel criticised

By Our Special Correspondent

CHENNAI, OCT. 7. The Janata Party president, Subramanian Swamy, said today that the decision of the United Progressive Alliance to wind up the Phukan Commission of Inquiry into the Tehelka sting operation was "motivated" by vendetta against the former Defence Minister, George Fernandes.

The Phukan Commission had barely two years to go into the matter, he said in a statement. This contrasted with the seven years the Jain Commission had to go into the Rajiv Gandhi assassination. "George Fernandes is obviously an implacable opponent of Ms. Sonia Gandhi's pretension to power. Hence he has been targeted," he said.
