Congress files legal suit against ex-CAG Vinod Rai
Rai, who is writing a book on his days as head of CAG suggested that Singh was more interested in remaining in power.

New Delhi: Congress has sent legal notice to ex Comptroller & Auditor General Vinod Rai after he targeted former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and questioned his integrity as the head of the Union Cabinet when major scams like 2G spectrum scam and Coalgate took place under his nose.

Congress's Sanjay Nirupam has filed the legal suite against Rai.

Rai, who is writing a book on his days as head of CAG suggested that Singh was more interested in remaining in power. Being extremely critical of the UPA government, he said his phone was tapped by the Centre and he felt Singh was part of the decisions to allocate 2G telecom spectrum on first-cum-first serve basis and coal blocks without auction.

"...in 2G and coal there is no way he (Singh) can shirk responsibility. In 2G all the letters written by (then telecom Minister) A Raja were to him and he was replying to those letters. I got no reply to any letter I wrote to him.
