The spectrum scandal is in the news again..The central bureau of investigation has raided the offices which comes under the IT and communication ministry. Union cabinet Minister Raja who is the minister in charge of the department has been repeatedly saying that he did what his predecessor did in 2001.So it is obvious the same pattern of dealings AND CORRUPTION could have happened in 2001. As anyone can recall when the news of this big scandal broke out in 2006, the Sun network which is owned by the Maran brothers , which was not in good terms with the first family of the DMK at that time, went berserk by giving great importance to the spectrum scam.Unable to bear the heat generated by the sun network propaganda the first family of the DMK announced truce and patched up with the Maran brothers.All of a sudden the sun network buried the scam.After the patch up the country saw the nauseating raw money power of the DMK in the Thirumangalam bye-election to the tamilnadu assembly and in the recently held MP elections. Now reasons well known to the UPA government, the CBI has raided the IT ministry's offices.If the CBI is serious in its intention to unearth the truth i suggest the following pointers.
The CBI SHOULD START INVESTIGATIONS FROM 2001 ALLOCATIONS, BECAUSE RAJA SAYS HE DID WHAT HIS PREDECESSOR DID. IT SHOULD THOROUGHLY INTERROGATE ALL THE OFFICIALS WHO WERE WITH THE DEPARTMENT SINCE 2001.ONE OR TWO HONEST OFFICIALS MIGHT BE WILLING TO COME OUT WITH THE TRUTH. RAJA SHOULD BE QUESTIONED THOROUGHLY SO AS TO SUBSTANTIATE HIS CLAIM THAT HE DID WHAT WAS ALREADY DONE. IF HIS STATEMENT IS TRUE THEN THERE IS NO NEED FOR A UNION CABINET MINISTER BECAUSE ONE ORDINARY LOWER CLASS DIVISION CLERK COULD HAVE COMPLETED THE FORMALITY OF ALLOCATING THE 2G SPECTRUM. THE UNION MINISTER SHOULD HAVE APPLIED HIS MIND TO SEE THE BENEFITS THE GOVERNMENT WILL GET IN ANY DEALING. MOREOVER RAJA NEVER DENIES THE WRONG DOINGS COMMITTED BY THE BUYERS OF THE 2G FROM THE GOVT. RAJA SHOULD STEP DOWN AND MANMOHANSINGH WHO CLAIMS TO BE A HONEST ECONOMIST WHO HAS FAILED IN HIS DUTIES AS AN EFFECTIVE SUPERVISORY PM SHOULD ALSO STEP DOWN.THIS INVESTIGATION CANNOT SEE THE LOGISTICAL RESULT UNLESS SOME HONEST SC JUDGE SUPERVISES THE CBI INVESTIGATION.
