Latest News

The "massive propaganda" against the UPA on the 2G spectrum was without any foundation, former prime minister Manmohan Singh said today after a special court acquitted all accused in the spectrum scam case. The judgment speaks for itself, Manmohan Singh said.

"I do not want to boast (about) anything. The court's judgment has to be respected. I am glad that the court has pronounced unambiguously. All the massive propaganda which was being done against the UPA was without any foundation. The judgment speaks for itself," Singh said.

Former telecom minister A Raja and DMK MP Kanimozhi were on Thursday acquitted by a special court in the 2G spectrum scam case.

Fifteen other accused in the case and three companies were also acquitted. 

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, while reacting after the judgment, claimed that there was a loss in the auction of 2G spectrum carried by UPA.

"The fact that the policy caused loss is clear from the fact that the subsequent auctions got a much higher price," ANI quoted  Arun Jaitley as saying.
