DMK’s ally, the PMK, on Thursday said law will take its course on the issue of CBI implicating DMK leader and Union Textiles Minister Dayanidhi Maran in the 2G spectrum scam.
“Let law take its own course,” party founder S Ramadoss told reporters in Chennai.
Asked about Mr. Maran’s continuance in the Union Cabinet, Dr Ramadoss said it was the Prime Minister’s prerogative to decide on the matter.
Mr. Maran is in the eye of a storm following the CBI’s report to Supreme Court implicating him in the 2G spectrum scam.
In its status report on the 2G scam probe placed in the apex court on Wednesday, the investigation agency alleged that Mr. Maran had ‘forced’ Aircel owner to sell its stakes in favour of a Malaysian firm which was granted spectrum licence when he was Telecom Minister during 2004-07.
On the death of a 13 year-old-boy inside army premises in Chennai on Sunday, Dr Ramadoss said “Police should have by now arrested the culprit and put him behind bars (as) it is not a big deal to nail the accused. The incident had happened inside the army campus,” he said.
Releasing his party’s ‘shadow Agriculture budget,’ Dr Ramadoss charged the army with not cooperating with investigating CB-CID wing of state police in its investigation.
On his party’s ‘shadow Agri-budget,’ Dr Ramadoss said it had provisions for developing the key sector and contained various measures for the welfare of farmers.
Organic farming, mechanised farming, revival and maintenance of water bodies and special nutritious meal schemes were some of the provisions, he said.
