Balwa drags Tatas, Videocon in 2 G scam

Balwa accused the Tatas of paying former telecom minister and 2G scam-accused A Raja Rs 20 crore in the name of charity.

According to Balwa Tatas made the donation of Rs 20 crore to Raja in the name of charity to a medical college-cum-hospital in Perambalur and acknowledged it was done on a special case.

Balwa’s lawyer Majeed Memon referred to a letter written by Raja to the Tatas regarding a donation of Rs 20 crore for a medical college-cum-hospital in Perambalur.

“On September 15, 2009, Ratan Tata himself wrote to Raja acknowledging the receipt of his letter for donation and also mentioned that Tatas have never made a grant of this magnitude to an external person. However, the grant of Rs 20 crore is made to a hospital in Perambalur as a special case,” Majeed Memon said.

Memon asked the court as to what is this special case that Ratan Tata referred to and why is it not being looked at suspiciously.

Balwa also said Venugopal Dhoot of the Videocon Group had entered Parliament using the identity card of MP Rajkumar Dhoot and got in touch with telecom department officials.

Balwa claimed that this access helped Dhoot jump the queue in getting a 2G licence while also claiming that he was innocent and had no role in the allotment of 2G spectrum while defending himself in the court of Special Judge OP Saini in New Delhi.

Balwa claimed that it was the Department of Telecom which took all the decisions regarding the grant of licences to telecom firms and left out Tata.
