New Delhi: Undeterred by the mounting opposition attack on his role in 2G spectrum allocation, Telecom Minister A Raja today ruled out resignation over the issue, saying he will prove that everything has been done according to the law. “The question does not arise at all.
We will prove that everything has been done according to the law,” the embattled Minister told reporters, a day after the opposition stalled proceedings in Parliament for the second consecutive day demanding his resignation. Raja”s comments assume significance in the wake of indications that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will take a decision on his continuance in the Union of Council of Ministers after his return from Seoul tonight.
“Where does that question arise from? It doesn”t arise at all,” he said when pressed whether he would step down in the wake of the mounting attack from the opposition, including BJP and AIADMK. The DMK Minister maintained that he will not comment on the spectrum allocation issue as it is “sub-judice” and said the affidavit submitted by the Telecom Department before the Supreme Court yesterday “says it all”. “The entire matter is sub-judice.
It may not be fair on my part to comment on this.
Whatever I have done is according to the law,” he said.
