Ashok Chavan and Suresh Kalmadi have been let go by the Congress. Who will be next?

The scams laid at the government’s door do not end with the Commonwealth Games in Delhi and the war homes scandal in Mumbai.

The opposition and the media, having tasted blood with Shashi Tharoor, Chavan and Kalmadi, now have Telecoms Minister Andimuthu Raja in the crosshairs over the sale of 2G spectrum.

Pranab Mukherjee, the omnipresent firefighter, has defended the government, saying the enquiry on the Delhi Games was instituted even before the opposition demanded it.

On the war homes scandal, his stand is the matter involves individual transgressions, not the government and hence does not concern parliament.
