Former chairman of Trai Baijal’s latest sensational comments on 2 G scam led to a fresh controversy which upset the Congress party. Baijal said that former prime minister Manmohan Singh and former minister Dayanidhi Maran had actually threatened him to follow their instructions or he would face consequences. Both of them interfered in his duties, he pointed out. In his book titled The complete story of Indian reports – 2 G, Pradip Baijal revealed that he being a senior officer had suffered under the pretext of four year investigation. He had written in his book what he knew about the entire scam and that he was not scared of anybody whatsoever.
The Modi government had reacted on his comments and Union minister Prakash Javedkar said that the said book testified that UPA government was responsible for the 2 G scam and demanded that Manmohan must reply to the allegations made by the former Trai chief. Along with Singh the Congress party also fell into a trap. However, the Congress party senior leaders are getting ready to give a tough counter to what Pradip said.
