Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy Saturday named Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and DMK chief M. Karunanidhi as a co-accused along with former communications minister A. Raja in the 2G spectrum scam in his complaint to a CBI court here.

“I have named DMK chief Karunanidhi as a co-accused along with Raja in the matter and many more names will be added,” Swamy told the court.

He said the matter is wider than the CBI investigation and in the “nation’s interest”.

The court asked the probe agency to file its detailed report of the investigation and also whether it covers the aspect of national security as raised by Swamy.

Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) judge Pradeep Chaddha issued notice to the CBI seeking prosecution of Raja in the 2G spectrum case.

The notice has been issued for Feb 22.

The order came on a private complaint filed by Swamy seeking registration of a criminal case against Raja for his alleged role in the scam, which, according to the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG), caused a presumptive loss of Rs.1.76 lakh crore to the exchequer.

Meanwhile, the CAG has submitted a detailed report in the scam.

Raja and two of his aides were arrested here Wednesday for their suspected role in the allocation of airwaves for second generation (2G) phone services, billed as the country’s biggest corruption scandal to date.

Its a shame that these obese predators whose feet are not from the funeral pyre still pose a threat to the integrity of this Country.

Now, THE CAMEL is under MOUNTAIN. Citizens paid price of dreaming GDP 9-10% shown by PM as Inflation of price rise, but actual growth of Country is Looted by Corrupt Politicians of UPA-2. DMK support to A Raja as DALIT Victim was to save it’s own skin. RAJA’S episodes proves that RING LEADERS appoints Tainted Bureaucrats and Corrupt Politicians to Plunder Nation. Every Family Members must be charged with involved in conspiracy of Loot, if proved knowingly shares and enjoys it. It would be interesting to see how this case of 2g would be linked with DAWOOD-ISI Nexus and dangerous… Read more »
