Telephone Talk between Nira Radia, A.Raja and Kanimozhi.
CORPORATE lobbyist Nira Radia admitted before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials that she was liaising with tainted former telecom minister A. Raja on behalf of her client Tata Teleservices. Nira Radia got Rs 60 crore for ‘consultancy’
Radia asserted in a statement released by her company Vaishnavi Corporate Communications, that her only client Tata Teleservices has been discriminated against over the years and therefore suffered huge losses.”The new CAG report also clearly states that Tata Teleservices, has been unfairly discriminated against in the allotment of spectrum,” she said.
The directorate recorded Radia’s 20-page statement in her own handwriting regarding her role in the 2G spectrum scandal. “The statement was recorded under Section 50 of the Money Laundering Act which is admissible as evidence before a court of law,” an ED officer said.
The I-T department in November 2009 had tapped phones of Radia and gathered information about nexus between politicians, officials, business tycoons and senior journalists.
