Not taken aback over DMK's decision to name tainted Raja as LS candidate: BJP
Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Monday said he was not surprised to hear the news of tainted former Union Telecommunication Minister A Raja contesting the Lok Sabha polls.
"Yes, its no surprise, as there is no bar now for him (A Raja) to contest Lok Sabha polls. But in the event of Justice A Saini's trial court finding Raja guilty, then he will be automatically disqualified. His (Raja) name features in the DMK's probable list of Lok Sabha candidates, as he bore the brunt of the 2G scam, thereby shielding Karunanidhi and his family, who also got a share from the 2G fiasco." Swamy said.
DMK president M Karunanidhi on Monday released the candidates list for the Lok Sabha elections. The party re-nominated eight of its sitting MPs, including former Union ministers T R Baalu, Dayanidhi Maran, A Raja, S Jagathrakshakan and S Gandhiselvan for the Lok Sabha elections.
Raja is an accused in 2G scam while Dayanidhi Maran allegedly allotted some high-speed telephone lines illegally to his brother's TV channel, Sun TV.
