New Delhi: The CBI has alleged that DMK
MP Kanimozhi was an "active brain" behind the operation of
Kalaignar TV and actively pursued with intermediaries and her
party the reappointment of 2G scam accused A Raja as Telecom
Minister.
In its 53-page chargesheet, the CBI has alleged that
during investigations, it found that in 2007, Kanimozhi along
with other promoters incorporated Kalaignar TV after they left
Sun TV network.

"She has also been in regular touch with Raja
regarding the launching of Kalaignar TV and other pending
works related to the TV," the CBI, which named her as an
accused, claimed in the chargesheet.

The DMK MP was also an initial director of the company
but resigned as her clearance from the Ministry of Home
Affairs was pending and that would have resulted in delay of
launch of the TV, the CBI alleged.
"Investigations have also revealed that the accused
Kanimozhi was a stakeholder of Kalaignar TV to the tune of 20
per cent and was an active brain behind its operations. She
was widely covered by the Kalaignar Seiithigal (news) channel.

"She also actively pursued with the intermediaries and
DMK headquarters, the matter regarding reappointment of
accused as Minister of Communications and Information
Technology in 2009, which clearly establishes the strong
association of accused Kanimozhi and Raja," the agency
alleged.

The CBI has said that the DMK MP should be tried for
allegedly entering into a criminal conspiracy for taking
gratification other than legal remuneration in respect of an
official act.
