On the status of the audit report in the Rs. 3,600 crore deal, Rai said, "audit is under progress but don't know when it will be completed. I am not aware about the stage of audit".
It is alleged that kickbacks to the tune of Rs. 362 crore were paid to bag the contract. Referring to the spate of corruption issues, Rai said that things have changed and the silent majority can no more be bullied by the minority.
