Modi must apologise for plotting 2G spectrum conspiracy: Congress

Narendra Modi with his predecessor Manmohan Singh and Congress leader Sonia Gandhi in New Delhi

"First, the UPA government was shocked by the 2G scam expose, now the BJP has been left stunned by the court verdict. but Rai is having fun", the Sena said. Given that the DMK was a former partner in the UPA, the verdict could boost Congress attempts to stitch together a larger anti-BJP alliance in the country. The truth has come to light that no one is guilty in the 2G spectrum case.

The then UPA government acted in the matter by ejecting the then Telecom Minister A. Raja, and 19 politicians and industrialists, including Raja and his DMK party colleague Kanimozhi, were sent to jail, a parliamentary committee was set up to investigate the scam and the matter went to the courts. Now that the court has acquitted the accused, the BJP should respond.

Attacking the Prime Minister, he said: "If you see the Modi model in Gujarat it was a clear lie". "The court has pronounced unambiguously that the massive propaganda against the UPA was unfounded", former prime minister Manmohan Singh told reporters. In 2012, the Supreme Court cancelled the licences and ordered auction of the radiowaves. The lies have been exposed and BJP's conspiracy to defame the Congress party has been exposed. "The verdict is a huge relief for Congress".

But the CWC, presided over by Mr. Gandhi for the first time, focussed its deliberations on the 2G verdict. The Rs 1,76,000 crore loss to the exchequer was termed as corruption by political parties and accusation was made against A Raja.

The allegations of corruption against the Congress did not stop there as the "taint" of running a scam-ridden government by the grand old party continues to haunt it till now. "The court's verdict is definitely a good sign for the DMK". "The BJP maligned the country and the Congress for years by making false allegations of corruption as their principal strategy to gain power", said a statement issued by the Congress. "The verdict is in the favour of Congress and it will help the opposition further consolidate against the NDA".

A year before that, in 2011, under the leadership of social activist Anna Hazare the country witnessed the big anti-corruption movement which finally gave birth to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in November 2012.

Their clarion call was answered by the voters of India, as corruption was the main issue over which the BJP fought against the Congress in the last parliamentary elections and came out triumphant by winning 282 seats on its own and reducing the Congress to just 44 seats in the Lok Sabha. The special CBI court on Thursday, however, observed that it was a "scam" created by some people by exaggerating figures to "astronomical levels".
