New Delhi: Embattling ex-telecom minister A Raja wants P Chidambaram to be a witness in the 2G case.
He also clarified that he does not want either the home minster or prime minster to be implicated in the case.
The DMK MP also termed his judicial custody “illegal” and prayed for his “forthwith release.” Raja is behind bars for six months now.
“The matters relating to dilution of equities to foreign firms by Swan Telecom and Unitech Wireless were known to the Prime Minister and then finance minister Chidambaram,” he said.
Telcom Mnister Kapil Sibal yesterday clarified that, while he would not comment on the argument made by a “prospective accused” the PM or FM certainly knew about the policy on allocation.
Raja’s counsel Sushil Kumar made the submissions before special judge OP Saini.
Raja also accused the media of the bias against him. “They (media) cannot put words in my mouth. Ask them to report truthfully or go out of the court room,” he said.
