Rahul Khullar, TRAI Chairman, is pressurising the government to take over 1.2 Mhz spectrum with the BSNL putting the argument that the private telecom companies require more spectrum and the spectrum taking over from BSNL can be given for auction, which will give the government about Rs. 15,000 – Rs. 20,000 crore. The present TRAI Chairman has been acting as a spokesman of the private companies, and putting the same before the government.
We strongly protest against the proposal of the TRAI Chairman suggesting vacation of spectrum by BSNL. This will only further weaken BSNL. BSNL Management should immediately react and demand the government that no spectrum could be released.
