Expressing surprise at the Prime Minister's support to A Raja on the 2G spectrum allocation, the BJP today asked him to clarify whether he had asked the Telecom Minister to freeze all action on the issue in 2007.

"The new revelation clearly indicates that the PM had not given a go ahead to 2G spectrum, the manner in which it was done," BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said.

He said as Mr Singh has defended Mr Raja on the issue of spectrum allocation, "BJP wants to ask the PM why his letter dated November 2, 2007 asking Raja to freeze all action on 2G spectrum was not followed up."

He also asked him to clarify whether at all he had written the said letter.
