Manmohan had forced Baijal to cooperate in illegal 2G auction

New Delhi, May 26: Former TRAI chairman Pradip Baijal has set the cat amongst the pigeons by alleging in his book that former prime minister Dr Manmohan Singh had warned him of dire consequences if he did not co-operate in the 2G case.

In his book, "The Complete Story of Indian Reforms: 2G, Power and Private Enterprise - A Practitioner's Diary", former TRAI chairman has claimed that the UPA II government ruined his reputation to divert corruption charges against the coalition government. Baijal says he had warned several people in the UPA II government that all enquiries would lead back to the PM, as he had approved the actions of ministers and ministries in his government.

Baijal, who was under investigation for several years for his role in the 2G scam and disinvestment of properties,claims UPA  ruined his reputation to divert corruption charges against it. He was disinvestment secretary when Laxmi Vilas Palace Hotel was sold to Bharat Hotels in 2002.
