New Delhi: CNN-IBN has accessed details of a handwritten letter from Ratan Tata to DMK Chief Karunanidhi praising A Raja for his sound telecom policies.
Karunanidhi has however denied receiving any such letter.
In the document, which CNN-IBN has accessed, the Tata Group Chairman has described the former telecom minister’s policies on Spectrum allocation as rational and well reasoned.
Not just that, Ratan Tata has also written that telecom could emerge as the DMK’s single biggest achievement.
Tata has also clearly written that he is sending the letter to Karunanidhi through Corporate lobbyist Niira Radia. This could increase Karunanidhi’s trouble as he had denied reciving this letter in his party’s official organ Murasoli on Sunday.
Ratan Tata in his letter to Karunanidhi wrote,” Ever since Mr Raja took over as Minister, there has been a rational fair and action oriented leadership in the ministry.”
Tata Teleservices has issued a clarification on Ratan Tata’s letter to DMK Chief Karunanidihi dated 2007.
“Ratan Tata’s letter to the DMK chief written in November 2007, relates to various policy announcements on spectrum and other issues not implemented for years, despite being legally sound, rational and well-reasoned. The letter underlines the fact that the said policy announcements would demolish the powerful technology bias which was inhibiting free growth for all operators,” said the press release.
