Description

Arun Shourie told during 2011 that former DMK Minister Raja not followed any procedure in 2G allocation. [This was written by me during July 2011] Former telecom minister has stirred up a storm during 2011 by alleging that a key official in the Prime Minister’s Office had wanted the PMO kept at "arm's length" on the 2G issue. Arun Shourie was reacting to former telecom minister and 2G accused A Raja's contention in court on Monday [25-7-2011] that he had discussed the 2G spectrum allocation issue with Singh and Chidambaram .Shourie claimed that he was basing his statement on the Prime Minister's file on this issue. Refuting Mr. Raja's claim that he was only following the NDA policy on spectrum allocation while dealing with 2G allocation, Mr. Shourie said: "He is completely wrong in saying he was following NDA policy. I can show he was not following any policy, procedure or principle." "It is a very interesting point (fist-come-first-served-basis). It is a red herring shown to the public. The issue is that (former telecom minister) A Raja made money irrespective of whether it was a first-come-first-served policy or not. Raja's disclosure in the court on Monday [25-7-2011] has not only given fresh ammunition to the Opposition to target the former PM and Chidambaram, but deepened the suspicion that a DMK Minister alone could not have been architect of such a massive fraud. God only know what has happened in 2g Spectrum allocation fraud.
