On December 21, former telecom minister A Raja and DMK MP Kanimozhi were acquitted by a special court in the 2G spectrum scam case. Fifteen others accused in the case and three companies were also acquitted.
Rai, who was the Comptroller & Auditor General of India (CAG) when the national auditor filed the 2G scam report, was in town for a meeting of the COA, which runs the BCCI now.
When a reporter sought for his comments on the 2G (case), Rai quipped: “Aap log cricket handle karto ho ya 2G handle karte ho (Do you guys cover cricket or 2G?)”.
Rai has so far not commented on the issue on any forum.
