Officials suppressed 2G facts from Manmohan Singh: Court

New Delhi: A special court today informed that the senior officials at the office of then prime minister Manmohan Singh had “suppressed the most relevant and controversial part” of A Raja’s letter and the then telecom minister “cannot be faulted” for misrepresenting the facts.

The CBI had alleged that Mr Raja had misled Dr Singh in his letters on several key issues related to the policy of grant of 2G spectrum licences, including first-come-first-served and the cut-off date.

“It was not A Raja, but Pulok Chatterjee, in consultation with T K A Nair, as he had suppressed the most relevant and controversial part of the letter of A Raja from the then Prime Minister,” Special CBI Judge OP Saini said while acquitting all accused in three separate 2G spectrum cases.

“In the end, I do not find any merit in submission of the prosecution that the Prime Minister was either misled by A Raja or that the facts were misrepresented to him,” the judge said while making a stinging remarks against the top bureaucrats.
