Yechury draws PM into 2G scam
Mail Today Bureau New Delhi, June 2, 2010
The telecom scam heat threatens to scald Prime Minister Manmohan Singh after he indirectly defended the actions of controversial minister A. Raja in the sale of 2G spectrum.
Days after the PM's press conference, where he said Raja had acted according to the guidelines of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India, CPM politburo member Sitaram Yechury raised the issue.
"If the PM gives Raja a clean chit, he has to answer the questions raised by us on the scam. The PM's premium is his value based politics, so if he wants value as his premium, he has to act against Raja." Releasing an audit report by the post and telecommunications audit office dated March 31, 2010, Yechury said the document supplemented the growing evidence against Raja.
Yechury also released an open letter, his third, to the PM outlining the case against Raja. Anticipating Raja's mentor, DMK chief M. Karunanidhi's stand that he was being targeted as he was a Dalit, Yechury said: "We are targeting Raja as the minister for telecommunications. Caste, community are totally unrelated."

Draining the nation of Rs 1.9 crores for personal and corrupt purposes is unpardonable by the citizens of the Nation. The predator needs to be apprehended before the Nation is sold out to criminals. It is the poor who have been cheated by the rich and the mighty! Is the Nation incapable of tracking the footprints of the illegal money trail?
