Union Law Minister M Veerappa Moily on Monday alleged that the guidelines framed by the NDA government were responsible for the 2G spectrum scam.
"2G spectrum was allocated as per the guidelines framed by NDA regime -- by Pramod Mahajan and Arun Shourie while they were incharge of Telecom ministry. UPA cannot be faulted for this," Moily told reporters here.
The NDA government formulated guidelines in 2001, he said and lashed out at the alliance parties for levelling allegations against the UPA government.
He said the government will not interfere in the on-going investigations into the 2G scam.
Moily said the government would soon evolve guidelines to check illegal mining in the country after studying various reports including the one submitted by the Supreme Court appointed Central Empowered Committee (CEC).
