Union Textile Minister Dayanidhi Maran has come under the Supreme Court’s scanner in the 2G Spectrum allocation scam with the CBI raking up his role in “forcing” a Chennai-based telecom promoter to sell his stakes in Aircel to a Malaysian firm in 2006.
The agency, which placed its 71-page fresh status report about the 2G scam, said that during 2004-07, when Mr. Maran was Telecom Minister, the promoter C. Sivasankaran, was forced to sell the stake in Aircel to a Malaysian firm Maxis Group.
Senior Advocate K.K. Venugopal, who read the status report before a bench of justice G.S. Singhvi and A.K. Ganguly, did not take Mr. Maran’s name but stated that the Chennai business man was not granted UAS licence for two years.
It said that the Malaysian firm was favoured by Mr. Maran and was granted licence within six months after taking over the Aircel in December 2006. Mr. Maran was the Telecom Minister between February 2004 and May, 2007.
Shameless Ministers hang on to power despite overwhelming evidence against their Corruption!
