More and more evidences are piling up against former communications and present textiles minister Dayanidhi Maran in the 2G scam.
Now the CAG has given evidence before the JPC that it was Maran who compelled the government to give full powers regarding the spectrum pricing to the Telecom Ministry cutting the rights of the other ministries like Finance. The statement of Sivasankaran, former Aircel owner, that Maran arm-twisted him to hand over Aircel shares to Maxis. It is understood that through this deal the Sun TV, owned by the Marans, got crores as kickbacks. Justice Shivraj Patil Committee has also pointed out its fingers against Dayanidhi Maran on irregularities. It specifically mentioned the former minister ignoring the Group of Ministers while taking decisions on spectrum etc.
One more minister of the UPA II may be charged by CBI and taken in to custody. But till the last moment, the Prime Minister is trying to save his corrupt ministers. What a tragedy!
