In a debate moderated by TIMES NOW's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami, panelists -- Nalin Kohli, Natl Spokesperson, BJP & Advocate; M R Venkatesh, CA & Policy Analyst; Prof R Vaidyanathan, Professor, IIM Bangalore; Jaiveer Shergill, Advocate, SC & Media Panelist, Congress; Rahul Narvekar, Spokesperson & MLC, NCP; and Gaurav Bhatia, Spokesperson & National Head, Legal Cell, SP -- discuss the issue of former PM Manmohan Singh calling corruption during UPA Govt a non-issue. And, being in denial over UPA scams, is the former PM down with #Scamnesia?
Under attack over allegations in 2G scam, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today asserted that he had "never used" public office to "enrich" himself, his family or friends. "As far as I am concerned, I can say in all humility that I have not used my public office to enrich myself, to enrich my family or to enrich my friends. "And still the BJP government keeps on harping on this theme of corruption just because it wants to distract the attention of the people to non-issues," he said in an uncharacteristic hard-hitting speech at a convention organised by Congress' student wing NSUI in New Delhi. Singh's statement came in the backdrop of former TRAI chairman Pradip Baijal's allegations that Singh had warned him of harm if he did not cooperate on 2G telecom licenses. Baijal, who was probed for several years in connection with the 2G spectrum allocation scam case, also claimed that the CBI wanted him to "implicate" Arun Shourie and Ratan Tata in the case. Latching onto the issue, BJP Ministers had called the Singh-led UPA government a "coalition in corruption".
