Welcoming the Supreme Court decision to monitor the probe into the controversial 2G spectrum allocation, Union Law Minister M Veerappa Moily on Thursday said the government has nothing to hide on the issue.

"This is what our government had said in the Supreme Court. We have nothing to hide. That's why we wanted the Supreme Court to monitor the Central Bureau of Investigation probe," he told medipersons in New Delhi. Moily said he was happy that the apex court has agreed to the government's request to monitor the probe.

The SC has widened the investigation in the case by bringing in its ambit the telecom policy from 2001 to 2008
covering both the National Democratic Alliance and the United Progressive Alliance regimes.

A bench comprising justices G S Singhvi and A K Ganguly made it clear that the emphasis of the investigation would be to determine the loss of money to the public exchequer and a progress report on the probe has to be filed by the CBI and Enforcement Directorate in a sealed cover on the next date of hearing on February 10, 2011.
