Hazare to Modi..If you have proof, appeal against 2G verdict

New Delhi, Dec 21: One of the leading crusaders against the 2G scam during the UPA regime, Anna Hazare on Thursday said that he was not in a position to say whether the 2G verdict is wrong or right, saying that "we are no one to judge the court’s verdict.”

“The court will only look for evidences and if no proof was found against the accused then nothing can be done,” Hazare said. "If the Government has concrete evidence, then they should take the matter to a higher court," he added.

A special court on Thursday acquitted all the accused in the alleged 2G scam, giving a major relief to former Telecom Minister A. Raja and DMK MP Kanimozhi who were jailed on charges of taking kickbacks to issue the telecom spectrum and licences in 2008 at throwaway prices. Special Judge O.P. Saini said the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate had failed to provide sufficient evidence to prove the charges against 33 persons named in the case that contributed to the Congress-led UPA' electoral loss in 2014. Judge Saini pulled up the Central Bureau of Investigation because it had "miserably failed" to prove any charge against any accused in its "well choreographed" chargesheet. ""Many facts recorded in the chargesheet are factually incorrect, like the Finance Secretary strongly recommending revision of entry fee, deletion of clause of draft Letter of Intent (LoI) by Raja, recommendation of TRAI for entry fees... "I have absolutely no hesitation in holding that prosecution has miserably failed to prove any charge against any of the accused, made in its all well choreographed chargesheet. All the accused are acquitted," the judge said.
