The “massive propaganda” against the UPA on 2G spectrum was without any foundation, former prime minister Manmohan Singh said soon after a special court acquitted all accused in the spectrum scam case.
The judgement speaks for itself, Manmohan Singh said. “I do not want to boast (about) anything. The court’s judgement has to be respected. I am glad that the court has pronounced unambiguously. All the massive propaganda which was being done against the UPA was without any foundation. The judgement speaks for itself,” Singh said.
It may be recalled that BJP had consistently attacked Singh alleging a scam under his tenure and this led to the fall of the UPA- 2 in the 2014 Lok Sabha Polls.
Former telecom minister A Raja and DMK MP Kanimozhi were today acquitted by a special court in the 2G spectrum scam case. Fifteen other accused in the case and three companies were also acquitted.
Randeep Surjewala, Chief Congress spokesperson tweeted his view on the verdict
Concocted conspiracy of Shri Narendra Modi, Shri Arun Jaitley & the entire BJP stands exposed today with the #2Gverdict by special CBI Court.
BJP maligned the country & Congress for years, making false allegations of corruption as their principle strategy to gain power. 1/
