'PM too guilty for not getting 2G issue probed by GoM'July 24 (PTI) Former Telecom MinisterA Raja on Tuesday dragged Prime MinisterManmohan Singh again in the 2G case, alleging he too could be held guilty of “conspiracy” and dereliction of duty for not forming a GoM to examine the spectrum allocation issue.

Raja’s submission before a court came just hours after theDMK MP said he did not seek to implicate Manmohan Singh and former finance minister P Chidambaram in the 2G case on the basis of his arguments yesterday.

“Just because he (Prime Minister) ignored it, no GoM (Group of Ministers) was constituted. By that standard, Prime Minister was also in conspiracy so far as dereliction of duty is concerned. It was his (PM’s) judgment that GoM was not required.” Raja said while concluding his arguments opposing the corruption and other penal charges against him.

47-year-old Raja, who is behind bars for nearly six months, said he deserves to be discharged from the case as the allegations against him are not established at all.

He sought his “forthwith release” terming his judicial custody as an “illegal detention”.

Questioning as to why the Prime Minister did not form a GoM to examine the spectrum allocation issue, Raja told Special CBI Judge O P Saini that the Prime Minister was superior to his client and he had the power to constitute the GoM, but he never felt the need to do it. Raja’s arguments were put forth by his counsel Sushil Kumar.

Earlier in the day, Raja pleaded to the court to make Chidambaram a witness in the case. He also said he had not sought to implicate the Prime Minister or the Home Minister in the matter and put the blame on the media.

Raja also vehemently denied forging any press release issued by theDepartment of Telecom in the 2G case,asserting that it was duly approved by the thenSolicitor General Goolam E Vahanvati.

  1. Does PM needs GoM in a $ 40 BILLION Telecom Scam in 45 Minutes done byy A RAJA? It needs to be in GUNIESS BOOK of WORLD RECORD by UPA. LEGALLY ILLITERATE PERSON is PM Manmohan, and not CAG. On the name of Coalition Dharma, Manmohan kept his eyes closed and let LOOTED the Country with ROWDY Politician’s Looter Gang Member like A.Raja in UPA, who today challenges the Patriotic Job of CAG. Mr.Raja come to the bottom line, How much of the LOOT money from 2g Scam is shared between DMK and CONGRESS? Hon SC must order IB & RAW to investigate Top 5 in UPA. GOOD JOB CAG:- INDIA THANKS YOU.
