PM response on 2G Scam, an article by P. Sainath

PM recently spoke to some media people trying to address the issue of 2G scam. This is an article by P. Sainath on how the media missed out on many important questions and how even on the ones asked, the PM gave shockingly absurd answers, like

The Prime Minister was not challenged when he virtually equated losses in the 2G scam with subsidies to the poor. “If auctions are not taking place then what is the basis for you to calculate a loss? … It is very much a function of what is your starting point. And also depends upon your opinion. We have a budget which gives subsidy for food, Rs.80,000 crores per annum, some people may say these foodgrains should be sold at marketplace. Will we say then because they are not sold at market prices, because you are giving them a subsidy, it is a loss of Rs. Rs.80,000 crores?”
