Allegations unverified and unsubstantiated: lobbyist Radia

delhi Updated: Nov 20, 2010 13:01 IST

In the eye of a media storm, Niira Radia-led Vaishnavi Corporate Communications (VCC) today said that "unverified and unsubstantiated allegations were being made against it with regard to controversial allotment of 2G spectrum".

VCC said in a statement that it strongly condemns the allegations by some media organisations against the group, its chairperson Niira Radia and its telcom client Tata Teleservices.

The statement comes in the wake of some magazines reporting transcripts of purported conversations last year between Radia and some leading journalists, industrialists and politicians, including A Raja who has resigned as telecom minister following the 2G controversy.

The conversations mostly veered around Raja before he got the coveted portfolio. In the backdrop of media reports that Radia had been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate to explain some of her bank transactions, the VCC said, "We would like to state that we have been asked by one single agency for some information and we are complying and cooperating with it."
