New Delhi, Jan 3 IANS | 9 months ago

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Friday said any wrongdoing with regard to 2G spectrum allocation and coal block allocations "will be punished" through due process of law.


"There is much public concern on high profile allegations of corruption, notably in regard to 2G spectrum allocations, coal block allocations and cases related to land," he said while addressing the media here.

"Where some decisions taken earlier, when allocations were made administratively, have come under question, they are being investigated. Any wrong doing will be punished through due process of law."

"We have taken major steps to change the existing procedures for allocation of spectrum and coal by shifting to auctions so that these problems do not arise in future," he added.
