Raja's letter to PM not based on facts, says Vahanvati

Attorney General of India G.E. Vahanvati Wednesday told a Delhi court that the letter of 2G case accused and former telecom minister A. Raja to the prime minister on the licensing policy was “not based on discussion with me”.

Vahanvati also said that the Raja’s Dec 26, 2007, letter regarding the policy of department of telecommunications (DoT) for 2G spectrum allocation also did not present the true facts about Raja’s discussion with then union minister Pranab Mukherjee.

The attorney general was deposing as a witness in the 2G spectrum case before Special Judge O.P. Saini.

During his cross examination by Raja’s counsel, the attorney general said: “It is wrong to suggest that what was communicated to the prime minister as the future course of action was based on the discussion with the then minister for external affairs (Mukherjee) and me.”
