The CAG has now found out a much bigger coal scam, of defrauding the public exchequer of Rs.10.67 lakhs crores due to unfair methods followed in handing over coal blocks to more than 100 companies, a scam which is six times bigger than the 2G Spectrum scam of the same period.. During 2004-09 period, the coal ministry and the public sector companies under it caused this huge loss to the exchequer because of not pursuing transparent methods for auctioning the coal blocks under their control. Even after such an explosive report was received, the prime minister and his office were shamelessly sleeping over it. Soon after the news came out the Congress spokespersons have started coming out with cock and bull stories similar to the ones they had uttered when the 2G Spectrum scam had come out. As in the case of 2G Spectrum, only if public pressure is exerted the government will be forced to at least some action to reveal the extent of the scam and to name at least a few who were involved in it. When the 2G Spectrum case went before the Supreme Court, without hesitation it had ordered the cancellation of the 122 contracts issued to corporate and MNCs. If the present case is also taken to the SC, all these fraudulent companies and mafias getting fabulous benefitted due to this scam will be ordered out, no doubt. So there should be a public outcry for all the facts from the government and necessary action to stop the plunder of country’s precious resources by such companies.
