CBI Court: No evidence of wrong doing in 2G Spectrum Allocation

In what can be called as an lousy job by the prosecutors and CBI, the special CBI court acquitted all accused, including former telecom minister A Raja and DMK leader Kanimozhi, in the 2G Telecom allocation scam cases.
While the irregularities in the spectrum allocation were in public domain, and helped UPA loose much of public trust in the run up to general election of 2014, the court found that presecution miserably failed to prove any of its charge against any one of those charged.

Earlier, in 2012, Supreme Court of India had cancelled all 212 licenses after reasoning that the allocation of 2G spectrum as “unconstitutional and arbitrary”. The highest court of land had even Isaid that former telecom minister A. Raja “wanted to favour some companies at the cost of the public exchequer”, listing steps he took to ensure this”. However today CBI failed to proved the conspiracy as a criminal act.

While Subramanian Swamy has called to challenge the decision in a higher court, ex UPA ministers and congress leaders are now training guns at the then Auditor general of India Vinod Rai, who had estimated the of Rs 1.76 lakh crore due to faulty procedures followed by the then government.


Manish Tiwari and Kapil Sibbal have called for an apology from the Vinod Rai.

However the silence from BJP leaders have been deafening. Modi came to power with a sharp criticism of UPA for role of its leaders in alleged 2G spectrum scam and Coal Scam. Now that the CBI special court has found evidence presented by CBI – the agency that reports directly to Prime Minister’s office, UPA leaders are bound to hold Modi personally responsible.
This is also going to upset a lot of BJP supporters who were hoping Modi government to be able to provide justice against the wrong doings of previous administration. With Parliament in session, the debate over the case is far from over.
