Congress, DMK fight over CBI raid on A Raja

Chennai, Dec 8: The Central Bureau of Investigation's (CBI) raid on former Union Telecom Minister A Raja has sparked for the fight between Congress and Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), key ally in UPA government.

The DMK had met a meeting to discuss the situation and later said that the party stay united behind A Raja. Some leaders said that they are not happy with Congress' steps taken against A Raja.

"The CBI is doing its duty. There is a charge against Raja and he has been refusing it. He says that he can defend his case. Let the CBI come out with their findings. He is our member and we will stand by him," said senior DMK leader Elangovan.

Earlier some media reported that DMK has planned to change its stand in 2G spectrum allegations. The reports also said that Raja may resign key party positions.

Meanwhile, CBI continued its raid in Raja's residences in Chennai and New Delhi. An eight-member team conducted searches at Raja's house in his native village Velur in Perambalur district. Other officials also conducted raids in homes and offices of his relatives and aides.
