Ex-CAG Vinod Rai apologises to Congress's Sanjay Nirupam over 2G allegation

Sanjay Nirupam later said Vinod Rai should apologise to the country over the CAG reports on 2G spectrum and coal block allocations, alleging that these were both "bogus".

Former Comptroller and Auditor General of India Vinod Rai has tendered an unconditional apology to Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam. The leader had filed a defamation case against Rai for his remarks in 2014 that Nirupam pressured him not to name former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in the CAG report on 2G spectrum allocation.

Rai tendered the apology in an affidavit submitted in a Metropolitan Magistrate court in Delhi in which he stated that the comments he had made against Nirupam are “factually incorrect.” The court has now disposed of the case following the apology.

Vinod Rai in an affidavit filed in the court has said that he has inadvertently and wrongly mentioned Sanjay Nirupam's name earlier.

Sanjay Nirupam later said Vinod Rai should apologise to the country over the CAG reports on 2G spectrum and coal block allocations, alleging that these were both "bogus".

Rai as CAG authored the coal and 2G spectrum allocation reports during the UPA 2 govt which led to the narrative of massive corruption.
