After being granted bail last month, and permission to visit Tamil Nadu till the end of this month, A Raja, the former Telecom Minister visited his mentor, M Karunanidhi, midst the sea of his supporters! He is the prime accused,so far, in the 2G Scam case who has spent more than a year in the jail and is out on bail.
Mr Raja is being tried in a Delhi court for breach of trust by a public servant, cheating and criminal conspiracy. As the telecom minister in 2008, he sold licenses to companies who allegedly paid him to be moved to the head of a long waiting line. The Supreme Court however has cancelled 122 of the licenses he sanctioned. His party,DMK has projected him as a visionary who ensured mobile phone services are made affordable to every Indian! Now, it is the Supreme Court which will decide his fate and his vision, if they were for the nation or to make money for himself !
Tamil Nadu HR and CE Minister MSM Anandan alleged that the previously ruling DMK government had concentrated mostly on work which required the usage of gold owned by various temples in the State where the government had taken about 500 kg of gold from different temples and used it to make gold chariots, gold vimana and gold flagstaffs.Some devotees suspect if even one third of the 500 kg gold colected has been used to make these.
