Pranab yet to see report on CBI raid on DoT

New Delhi: Finance minister Pranab Mukherjee declined to comment on the CBI raids on the office of Department of Telecom (DoT) in connection with alleged irregularities in allocation of 2G spectrum to new players.

“I have only read in papers ... Let me get the report, then I will form my view," the minister told reporters when asked to comment on the developments.

The CBI raided the DoT offices on Thursday to look into the documents relating to the award of licenses in January 2008 to new telecom operators.

Telecommunications minister A Raja, however, ruled out his resignation on Thursday saying all the procedures laid down by the Trai were followed and the decisions were taken after consultation with the Prime Minister.
