The 2G Tale

  • DMK members in the JPC TR Baalu and T Siva had been pressing Chairman PC Chacko to call Raja as a witness.
  • They also want that Vahanvati should be called again before the panel after he told the JPC earlier this month that the controversial press note regarding 2G licences was changed at the last minute by Raja in 2008 with a different pen. Vahanvati was then the Solicitor General.
  • Chacko is apparently against calling Raja as a witness.
