Congress today steered clear of commenting on a judicial committee report that is understood to have named former Telecom Minister A Raja and some officials close to him as being responsible for lapses in allocation of licences.
On a day, when DMK chief M Karunanidhi is in the national capital meeting Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi, the party also indicated that the seat sharing talks between it and DMK is going to be a smooth affair for the state which goes to elections this year. "I do not know what is in report.
Once the report is made public, we will comment on it if it is required," party spokesperson Manish Tewari told reporters here when asked to comment on the report of Retired Justice Shivraj Patil, who went into the procedures for giving 2G spectrum between 2001 and 2009.
The report is understood to have named former Telecom Minister and DMK leader A Raja and some officials close to him as being responsible for lapses in allocation of licences. Asked whether the seat sharing talks between DMK and Congress would be smoothly finalised, Tewari said,"we are an alliance partner both at the Centre and state level in Tamil Nadu and that is a political reality. Between the alliance partners, there are always constructive discussions and healthy dialogue."
