Radia tapes: 800 new conversations made public

The `Outlook` magazine made public more tapped conversations involving lobbyist Niira Radia and said that it had "unearthed" 800 new conversations.



New Delhi: The `Outlook` magazine on Saturday made public more tapped conversations involving lobbyist Niira Radia and said that it had "unearthed" 800 new such conversations.

The intercepts offer fresh political insight into how
key portfolios were allocated when the Union Cabinet was
formed after the victory of the Congress-led UPA in May 2009,
with the Kenyan-born British lobbyist, who counts the Tatas
and Ambanis among her clients, in the thick of it, the weekly
said in a press release.

It said while the tapes were still being decoded, many
of them already "shine a mirror on the interplay between
government and big business", especially with regard to the
inclusion of A Raja in the Telecom portfolio.

The new conversations are part of the over 5,800
conversations now in the custody of the Supreme Court, the
release said.

The conversations, all part of an officially-sanctioned
tap, are in addition to the 140 conversations already placed
in public domain by `Outlook` three weeks ago.
