Beleaguered former Telecom Minister, A Raja on Saturday met DMK President, M Karunanidhi, three days after the CBI raided his residence in connection with the 2G spectrum scam. Both were closeted for some time at the CIT colony residence of Chief Minister Karunanidhi, but the outcome was not known.
This is the first meeting between the two after Raja quit as Telecom Minister in the face of allegations about his involvement in the 2G spectrum scam. Late last night, Raja had put up a brave front in the aftermath of the CBI raids at his New Delhi residence and those of his close aides in Tamil Nadu, saying that these were mere "scrutiny" and no one was above scrutiny. He had said that he would cooperate with the investigating agency and "comply with it".
