Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy on Saturday disputed the statement of Union Minister for Communications and Information Technology A. Raja that the Central government made Rs.70,000 crore from the allocation of the 2G spectrum, saying that it was based “purely on presumption.” The whole issue lacked fairness and transparency, he told journalists here.

He said the World Intellectual Property Organisation had rejected patent for the Election Commission's electronic voting machines stating that it could be rigged. He will present the document in the Delhi High Court when the case against EVMs comes up for hearing on August 25.

Dr. Swamy was made the convener of the legal cell of the Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha which would consist of lawyers who would fight for the rights of Hindus.

The cell would be formed first in Andhra Pradesh followed by Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Similarly, a Hindu Parliamentary Forum, consisting of 50 MPs irrespective of party affiliation, would be formed to raise issues concerning Hindus in Parliament, he added.
