Raja moves SC, questions Feb 2 verdict
TT Correspondenti |  |  03 Mar 2012

The former telecom minister who has been in jail for over a year for alleged irregularities in allotting 2G spectrum in 2008 has moved the Supreme Court on Friday seeking a review of the apex court verdict on February 2 cancelling all the 122 licences allotted during his tenure.


Before him the government and many telecom firms moved the apex court questioning its verdict. Arguing that the court had condemned him without giving him an opportunity to present his case, Raja said that the SC decision had affected his reputation which is his fundamental right.


Giving the verdict the Supreme Court on February had said,”the exercise undertaken by officers of the DoT (department of telecommunications) between September 2007 and March 2008 under the leadership of the then telecom minister was wholly arbitrary, capricious and contrary to public interest apart from being violative of the doctrine of equality."


"These findings have been made in the judgment against the petitioner (Raja) when he was not a party in the petitions, without notice to him and without hearing him or considering any explanation which could have been given by him for his conduct," Raja said in his petition.
