Former Telecom Minister A Raja has decided to directly take on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in the multi-crore 2G scam. Raja has questioned PM’s silence over the charges. In an interview to Times Now, Raja said: “There is no proof against me and I did not accumulate any wealth”. He further added: “There is no loss to the exchequer and I was only trying to infuse competition”.
Raja attacked Manmohan Singh and said that PM was silent and did not accept the PMO recommendation. “It must be fair to say that issues enumerated by the CBI and CAG were not presented by the government in front of appropriate forums,” Raja said. When asked whether Manmohan Singh and Finance Minister P Chidambaram should be questioned in the case, Raja said that it was upto the CBI to question them. “The CBI should decide who should be called and who should not be called for questioning in the 2G scam case,” he said.
