CBI  argued before a Special Court that former Telecom Minister A Raja had “misled“ the then prime minister Manmohan Singh on policy matters pertaining to allocation of 2G spectrum.

Commencing final arguments in the case, Special Public Prosecutor Anand Grover said Raja, in conspiracy with other accused, had advanced the cut-off date to favour accused firms in allocation of 2G licences. Grover argued that Raja had granted spectrum to “ineligible“ companies like Swan Telecom Pvt Ltd (STPL) and Unitech Wireless (Tamil Nadu) Ltd.He said that the first-come-firstserve (FCFS) policy was changed to favour some of the accused and Raja even rejected the proposal of the then Law Minister who had proposed that some of the key policy issues be referred to the Empowered Group of Ministers. Referring to the letters written by Raja on November 2, 2007 to the then prime minister, Grover said, “Raja infact misled Manmohan Singh on FCFS and cut-off date.“

The final arguments in the case would continue on May 25, the next date of hearing.The case pertains to the 2G spectrum allocation in which Raja, DMK MP Kanimozhi and 15 others including some top corporate executives are facing trial.
