A relieved DMK MP Kanimozhi has said justice has been delivered after the special court acquitted her and others in the 2G spectrum allocation scam cases. “There is no evidence against me and justice has been delivered,” Kanimozhi told mediapersons after the verdict was pronounced.
Kanimozhi, Rajya Sabha MP and daughter of DMK supremo M Karunanidhi, was accused of conniving with former telecom minister A Raja and other co-accused in “parking” of illegal gratification of Rs. 200 crore in Kalaignar TV Pvt Ltd, of which she was a promoter.
Meanwhile, DMK leader and working president MK Stalin has described as “historic” a special court verdict acquitting his party colleagues A Raja and Kanimozhi besides others in the 2G spectrum allocation case.
Expressing joy over the acquittal of all the accused, including his sister Kanimozhi and former telecom minister Raja, Stalin charged that the case was a “planned” attempt at “insulting and finishing off” a political party, referring to his own party.
“A historic verdict has been delivered,” Stalin, told reporters here in response to the special court acquitting all 19 accused in the case. Recalling that the case was filed in 2009, he said it was a “planned (attempt) to insult and finish off a party in the political history (of the country).” “It is a matter of joy that all of them have been acquitted,” he added.
Stalin earlier distributed sweets after the verdict was delivered even as DMK party workers and supporters held celebrations, especially outside the CIT Colony residence of Kanimozhi. Raja and DMK MP Kanimozhi were today acquitted by a special court in the 2G spectrum scam case. Fifteen others accused in the case and three companies were also acquitted.
