a rajaThe former telecom Minister A. Raja had misled Manmohan Singh on policy matters related to 2G spectrum allocation, to favor the accused firms, particularly Unitech Wireless Ltd, argued the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) today before the special court.

According to the arguments of special public prosecutor Anand Grover, A. Raja advanced the cut-off date to favor the accused firms. Besides rejecting the proposal of the then law Minister on key policy issues, Raja changed the first-come-first-serve (FCFS) strategy as well. In Grover’s words, “He (Raja), in fact, misled him (Manmohan Singh) on FCFS and cut-off date.”

“Curious things happened in DoT (department of telecommunication) which showed that this (change in FCFS policy) was deliberately done to favour the accused,” the prosecutor said.

CBI also said that Swan Technologies was ineligible on the date of application for grant of radio wave and the company was actually owned by Tiger Traders Pvt Ltd through Reliance ADAG.

The next date of hearing for the final argument of the case is fixed on 25th May. The case will decide the fate of Raja, DMK MP Kanimozhi and 15 others including some top company executives who are the prime accused in 2G spectrum allocation. In the process of allocating 122 licenses, the public exchequer has lost a whopping amount of Rs. 30, 984 crore, according to the chargesheet filed by CBI. The Supreme Court scrapped this argument on 2 February 2012.
