Perpetrators of 2G scam will be punished: Moily
Chennai, Nov.21 (ANI): Union Law Minister M. Veerappa Moily on Sunday assured stringent action against the perpetrators of the multi-million dollar 2G telecom spectrum allocation scam.
A report tabled in the Parliament recently held former Telecom Minister A. Raja responsible for causing losses estimated at rupees 1.76 trillion to the exchequer in the 2G telecom spectrum allotments by favouring some operators and not resorting to auction.
However, Raja has denied any wrongdoing.
Interacting with the mediapersons in Chennai, Moily maintained that the Cebtral Government had nothing to hide, and was open for any debate on the matter.
"If there is any culprit, he will be brought to book. We have nothing to suppress, we are open and that can be discussed in the parliament. That is the right forum, the parliamentary meeting," said Moily.
Moily further urged lawmakers of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to discuss the matter in the Parliament.
"We are ready to discuss, we are ready to debate, and we are ready to interact with the opposition or anyone and the right forum is the Parliament. Let them come and join the parliamentary forum for a healthy debate, not this kind of an undemocratic or unhealthy debate," said Moily. (ANI)
