Supreme Court cancels all licences issued by A Raja, another setback to UPA

In another major embarrassment to UPA and Congress, Supreme Court has cancelled all 122 2G licences issued by A Raja during his tenure as telecom minister.

On the eve of A Raja completing his first year in jail, Supreme Court scrapped all licenses issued by A Raja for allocating the 2G spectrum. Another major ruling that was expected today was the decision of Supreme Court against P Chidambaram’s involvement in the 2G scam. But, Supreme Court refrained from commenting anything on this and told the CBI trial court to decide if they wanted to pursue a case against then Finance Minister P Chidambaram’s for his alleged involvement in the 2G scam.

It's enough now Mr A Raja 2 G Scammer

It should be pointed here that A Raja himself has alleged the involvement of Chidambaram in 2G scam. in a statement in Court, A Raja even said that PM as well as Chidambaram were fully aware of the on goings in the 2G scam case. Congress came out as usual defending its leaders saying that the verdict was not an indictment of PM or Union Minister Chidambaram.

Supreme Court in its verdict today not just called the allocation as illegal but also said it was arbitrary and totally unconstitutional. It said that the “national asset” was gifted away by the telecom minister and officers of DoT at throw away prices. The Court has directed Telecom regulator TRAI to re-auction the 2G spectrum within 4 months and issue guidelines for the same within 2 months.

Anna’s team member Prashant Bhushan and Janata Party president Subramaniam Swamy have been consistently pursuing the case against A Raja and all alleged members in 2G scam. It is partly due to their constant vigilance that ministers like A Raja are now in jail.
