'I had nothing to do with 2G pricing'
Finance minister Pranab Mukherjee on Friday rejected suggestions that he had anything to do with the pricing of 2G spectrum and hit out at those spreading "disinformation" on the issue.
In 2007 when he was external affairs minister, Mukherjee had been appointed chairman of a Group of Ministers (GoM) on vacation of 3G spectrum which, he said, had nothing to do with 2G and its pricing.
The GoM was for vacation of spectrum by the defence and para-military forces and the communication ministry for mobile telephony and other issues. Pricing was not part of the mandate of the GoM, he said.
"In a nutshell, I had nothing to do with 2G," he told PTI in an interview during which he deprecated attempts to spread "a lot of disinformation" on 2G targeting ministers.
