Chennai: DMK Chief M Karunanidhi on Sunday refuted reports that Tata Group Chairman Ratan Tata had
written to him praising former Telecom Minister A Raja, now in
CBI custody, in connection with the 2G spectrum scam.

Writing in the party`s official organ "Murasoli", he also
rubbished AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa`s claim that corporate
lobbyist Niira Radia had personally handed over the letter to
him.
"I have not received such a letter and nobody has met me
to handover the same....," he said.

Turning the tables on Jayalalithaa, he said, "In fact, it
was she who wrote to the then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi
against her political mentor late M G Ramachandran saying he
was "unfit" to be the Chief Minister.

Jayalalithaa has demanded that Karunanidhi, his daughter
Kanimozhi, wife Rajathi and all others who had "maintained
close contacts" with corporate lobbyist Niira Radia be
interrogated by CBI to bring out the truth behind the scam.
"This has to be done immediately, for, the nation -- the
people -- have a right to know the whole truth," Jayalalithaa
had said in a statement yesterday.
