The list of corporate czars being summoned by the ED and CBI have been increasing one after another to give evidence in the 2G scam. Now it is the turn of the Public Accounts Committee to summon them. The PAC headed by Murli Manohar Joshi has now asked a list of high-profile business bosses to appear before the PAC. They include Ratan Tata, Anil Ambani, Vinod Goenka of DB Reality, S Tel Promoter C.Sivasankaran and Unitech MD Sanjay Chandra among others.
Niira Radia, the corporate lobbyist and head of the Vaishnavi Corporation has also been summoned in connection with the 2G scam which has resulted in 1.76 lakh crore loss to the Government.
In the meantime, CBI is reported to have intimated the Supreme Court they will issue charge sheet to former minister A.Raja and others shortly.
The question is whether the inquiry will result in conviction or will drag for years and vanish in the thin air like that of Boffors case? When high and mighty people are involved, what happens is known to all. Let us wait and see.
