BJP, Left target govt over spectrum auction

Express news service : New Delhi, Sat Nov 17 2012, 01:04 hrs
As the government continued to take potshots at the CAG for floating the Rs 1.75 lakh crore presumptive loss figure in the wake of the 2G spectrum auction, the BJP on Friday attacked the UPA for “brow-beating” the audit body while the Left parties alleged the government and the corporates had a “vested interest” in keeping the prices low.

Senior CPM leader Sitaram Yechury said there was lot of “false propaganda” that the auction has not yielded much and the loss was not what the CAG had estimated, but the fact was that “for 122 licences, the government had earned a little over Rs 9,000 crore in 2008, while for 22 circles which were auctioned now, it has already earned more”.

He said both the government and the corporates have a “vested interest” in keeping the prices low. Yechury said the government could have got better prices had it waited for some more months as the market would expand when data usage on mobiles phones picks up and asked the government to wait for some time before going for the next round of auction.

BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar too spoke in similar vein. He said contrary to the government’s claim, the CAG’s findings have been vindicated as only 22 licences have fetched more than the whole lot of 122 licences which were given in 2008 on first-come-first-serve basis. “Further, CAG has calculated the figure for 2008 and not 2012,” he said.

    When you are a decision maker and enforcer with vested interest you will definitely not bother about the loss. It is like the head of the family allowing the thief to steal in his own house for individual’s pleasure. We are entering the Era of Nandas before Chandra Gupta Mourya.
