Dayanidhi Maran likely to be dropped in next Cabinet reshuffle

In an attempt to cleanse the image of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh that the Government intends to restructure the first week of July, will probably decline in the textile minister Dayanidhi Maran, the fresh revelations about his alleged role in 2G fraud during his previous term as Minister for Communications.

Apart from demands for resignation, Maran attended the cabinet meeting on Thursday. He has been denying the allegations as unfounded and sent to media organizations published the first stories.

"Congress, not the problem because it happened to the track. For a moment the probe body or the court raises a little finger against Maran, warning him to leave the party," the Congress leader said.

Sources said the DMK leadership has asked Maran to "hold on" and participate in public meetings and official functions.

They said that the party fears that if the pressures on the corner Maran leaves in a hurry.

Already two of its influential leaders - a former communications minister and Rajya Sabha MP Raja and party supremo M Karunanidhi's daughter Kanimozhi - Tihar Jail has been the analysis of 2G spectrum. Maran was communications minister in 2004-2007 before the UPA government, I ask.

Maran tries to put the defense and Congress are trying to avoid commenting on the opposition parties - the DMK's arch rival AIADMK, the Bharatiya Janata Party and Left parties - is to raise the decibel his dismissal.

Maran have to fight their case on several fronts - Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which has begun to ask for his alleged role in the original 2G spectrum scam, the Supreme Court has made statements in which civil society groups, media revelations, and resisted the attack.

The main argument, initially shown Tehelka magazine, and observed a number of other reports, is that the C Sivasankaran forced the owner of the Aircel Maran, Maran selling telecommunications company based in Malaysia is a friend of T Ananda Krishnan 2006th

Reflected in Maran deliberately delayed the issuance of licenses in the sister concern of Aircel, Fat Wireless, where he was Sivasankaran. He issued the licenses changed hands shortly after Ananda Krishnan, who owns Maxis.

Within four months of spectrum allocation, Astro - a sister company Maxis - got nod to buy a cabinet of Rs 675 crore equity Sun Direct DTH, Maran's brother Kalanidhi Maran-owned company and family, the report pointed out.

Sixth June, Sivasankaran in a statement that repeated the CBI that he was forced to sell the company. Maran denied the allegation, saying Sivasankaran wanted to sell the company.

CBI likely to complete the initial probe allegations Maran two to three weeks and submit a report, according to sources. If it finds the material allegations Maran is likely to be questioned. This could lead to new cases against him.

Maran has been backfoot after media reports surfaced of his involvement in the fresh. Although he brought the defamation cases against Tehelka and New Indian Express, the first reports, he has not taken action against several Delhi-based newspapers and TV channels, which has carried information about the scam, according to sources.

On the political front, the chorus of denunciation its forward march."Maran to resign earlier. Otherwise, he is forced to go to the track direction," BJP spokesman Sitharaman Nirmala said.

Communist Party India (CPI) leader D. Raja said that "the involvement of the major fraud Maran, except the track is unfolding day by day." He should give up, he demanded.

Opposition parties demand resignation of Maran in the coming monsoon session, if he does not stop, says Janata Dal-United States-General Javed Raza.

The problem has been brewing in front of another Maran: Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) on 2G spectrum will call him soon.

"We invite all former telecommunications ministers, including Maran," JPC head PC Chacko said.

As the clouds gather in Maran, Congress is carefully watching the scenario. So far, she left the besieged party DMK Ministers to defend themselves.
