New Delhi, August 28: A Delhi court on Friday fixed September 2 for hearing former Jharkhand chief minister Madhu Koda’s plea to summon former prime minister Manmohan Singh in a coal block allocation case. In his plea, Koda said that “materials placed by the CBI shows the said conspiracy, if any, cannot be complete without the involvement of the (then) coal minister (Manmohan Singh) who had the fil say in the entire allotment.” He also sought summoning of the then secretary (energy) And Swaroop and the then secretary (mines and geology) Jai Shankar Tiwari, saying they were part of the three-member sub-group formed by the Jharkhand government to evaluate the pleas of firms and suggest suitable application for recommendation by the state.
