Raja has done little for his constitution: Jaya
Continuing her diatribes against senior DMK leaders, AIADMK supremo and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa today alleged that DMK's sitting Lok Sabha MP A Raja has done little for his constituency.
He was instrumental in the country suffering a loss of Rs 2 trillion in the allocation of telecom spectrum, she alleged addressing an election rally at Nilgirs.
Ms Jayalalithaa charged "Raja did not bring any projects to Nilgiris. But as a union minister in the Congress led government Raja was instrumental in the nation losing about Rs 2 lakh crore (two trillion) in the allocation of 2G spectrum allocation."
She said she wondered why the DMK had not come out of the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government at the centre in 2010 itself if it had believed that Raja was not involved in the 2 G scam.
She also charged Raja of not following the request of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to follow a transparent procedure in allocation of spectrum.
Ms Jayalalithaa also said recently the Income Tax department has sent a notice to the television channel owned by DMK president M.Karunanidhi's family members to pay Rs.113 crore as tax within 30 days.
Criticising the economic policies of the UPA government Ms Jayalalithaa said investments, exports went down because of that while imports, inflation and prices went up.
