New Delhi, Nov 26: Former Telecom Minister A Raja, who has been caught in the middle of the 2G spectrum scam, has made plans after he is acquitted and given a clean chit for allegations of masterminding one of the biggest telecom scams in independent India.

Raja has claimed that once acquitted, he will pen a tell-all book that could possibly lead to someone's prosecution. It has to be remembered that Raja has not moved the bail for the 2G scam as he is hoping for an acquittal rather than a temporary breather. He has been quoted as saying to reporters, "I will move for bail after my leader (pointing towards Kanimozhi) gets it. I am aiming at acquittal. I am reading, re-reading the chargesheets and statements of the prosecution witnesses."

On being asked if he was writing a book during his stint in Tihar Jail, he commented, "You will have lots of surprises when I am acquitted. My book will lead to someone"s prosecution."

Raja, a book lover added, "I have almost completed 40-50 books in jail. In fact there is a cell for me where I read all the chargesheets, bound well and kept systematically." In his current reading list is the book Sources of Indian Tradition. He has just finished reading Rajiv Malhotra"s Breaking India.

Raja commented that his extended stint in jail has given him a lot of time to think and utilized the time to do some soul searching.
