On the contrary, BJP's general secretary Jagat Prakash Nadda went to an extent, demanding that PM Manmohan Singh should discharge Maran if he denies to resign.
“The Prime Minister is not saying anything, Sonia Gandhi is also quiet. There are scam after scam coming out and they have become an integral part of the UPA government. The BJP is ready to fight a decisive battle against corruption," said BJP general secretary J P Nadda.
Maran claimed that he he favoured Sun Direct TV and said he had no shares in it. Hence, there was no loss to the exchequer during his tenure as Telecom Minister.
