The former Union Minister for Communications and Information Technology, A. Raja, who quit his post last month in the wake of the 2G spectrum allocation controversy, said on Monday that he would cooperate with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for questioning.

Confirming that he had received a letter from the CBI, Mr. Raja told journalists that he was in Chennai for “personal work and health check-up.” He had immediately sent a reply to the agency that he would appear before the authorities at a date convenient to the CBI. It was up to the CBI to indicate the fresh date.

He maintained that he was neither evading the law nor hiding. Mr. Raja also said that he would not seek anticipatory bail as he was not an accused.

On his recent meetings with Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi, he termed them the usual between the leader and a cadre.
