He has been quoted as saying, "I did not seek to implicate the Prime Minister and the then Finance Minister in 2G case." In spite of taking a soft stand, he added that P Chidambaram will have to appear in court as he was the witness to the sale of equity.
Raja's statements in court on Monday had ignited a fresh controversy after the two main figures in the UPA cabinet was named in the scam. He had stated on court, "Finance Min P Chidambaram approved the sale of spectrum stake by Unitech & DB Realty in the presence of the PM. Let the Prime Minister deny it."
Raja also had harsh words for the trial of the 2G scam calling in "unfair trial" and stated that "the unfairness has come from the court itself". He also requested the judge to ask the media to report facts truthfully or else go out of the court room.
He added that he was not getting bail due to pressure from other courts.
