CBI argued on Wednesday before a special court that former Telecom Minister A. Raja misled the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on policy matters pertaining to the allocation of 2G spectrum.

During the final arguments in the case, special public prosecutor, Anand Grover, told CBI Special Judge, O. P. Saini, that Raja misled Manmohan Singh on first-come-first-serve (FCFS) policy and cut off dates by referring the letters written by then Telecom Minister on November 2, 2007, to the former Prime Minister.

It was asserted by Grover that Raja had granted spectrum to “ineligible” companies like Swan Telecom Pvt. Ltd. (STPL) and Unitech Wireless (Tamil Nadu) Ltd. Grover also argued that FCFS was changed to favour some of the accused, and Raja even discarded the proposal of the then Law Minister who had proposed that some of the key policy issues be referred to the Empowered Group of Ministers.

The final arguments in the case would continue on the next date of hearing, May 25, 2015.

The case is related to the 2G spectrum allocation in which Raja, DMK MP Kanimozhi and 15 others are facing trial.
