New Delhi: BJP on Wednesday dubbed the arrest of former telecom minister A Raja as “too little too late” and demanded that others involved in the 2G spectrum scam should also be brought to book.
“The arrest is too little too late. It is very unfair to say that Raja alone had gulped Rs1.76 lakh crore. Who are the rest of the people? BJP categorically wants to know that,” BJP spokesperson Rajiv Pratap Rudy said.
He said Raja’s arrest was just beginning of an exercise.
“Please don’t give credit to the government for the arrest. Government has to answer many questions before this finally comes to an end,” he said.
Meanwhile the Congress today said the arrest of former A Raja in the 2G spectrum allocation scam was a case of law taking its own course.
“Congress had said earlier also that all such cases should be investigated and enquired properly and law will take its own course,” AICC general secretary Janardhan Dwivedi told reporters.
He dismissed as a “silly judgement” a question whether the arrest of a former Minister in the UPA government showed that the dispensation was corrupt.
“I am not bound to answer such silly judgement,” he said.
In reply to a question, he said the development would not have any bearing on the relations between the Congress and DMK, to which Raja belongs.
