Union Finance Minister P. Chidambaram's request to cancel petition against him rejected by High Court

The Union Finance Minister's plea in the Madras High Court seeking the dismissal of the long pending case against him by his political opponent of AIADMK Raja Kannappan related to the 2009 Loksabha election results.

P Chidambaram has earlier requested the high court to quash the petition filed against him by Raja Kannappan who contested against PC in the 2009 Loksabha poll from Sivaganga constituency, alleging that Chidambaram's supporters had manipulated the votes and helped him win for a narrow margin of 3300 votes.

Though the High Court removed two of the 29 allegations charged against him, refused to quash the case against the minister this morning and said that the case and the trial will continue...!

This is considered as another big blow to the ruling UPA government at the center, which celebrated its anniversary recently.
