New Delhi: DMK leaders on Tuesday expressed happiness on A Raja, former telecommunications minister, getting bail in the 2G scam.
Speaking to a news channel, former Union minister and senior DMK leader TR Baalu said, “We are very happy… all DMK members are very happy.”
Baalu said he along with other DMK MPs was on way to Tihar Jail to meet Raja, who is likely to be released from prison by this evening.
Responding to a question, Baalu said till Raja is proven guilty the party will stand behind him.
"He will prove his innocence," the DMK leader added.
On 2G petitioner Subramanian Swamy’s remarks that Raja getting bail will not affect the trial, Baalu said “what Swamy says is immaterial to us”.
Meanwhile, Raja’s wife said it’s a long battle ahead for them.
