Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy on Thursday filed a petition in the Supreme Court challenging a Delhi trial court's dismissal of his plea to make Union Home Minister P Chidambaram a co-accused in the 2G scam.

Swamy claimed that in his 70-para verdict delivered early this month, the trial court judge had agreed with him in 65 paras, yet his appeal was dismissed as the trial court felt that he was unable to prove Chidambaram's criminality in the case.

Swamy told the apex court in his petition that he could prove Chidambaram's criminality only if the latter was asked to undergo a cross-examination.

Swamy also said in another petition filed in the apex court that the Congress needed to be freed from the clutches of the Nehru-Gandhi family.

He said that the Nehru-Gandhi family has produced only one good leader in Rajiv Gandhi.

He said he could not recognise Sonia Gandhi or her son Rahul as political leaders in their own right.
