In 2011, Sibal had also claimed that there was zero loss. Speaking to media, Sibal said “Today it has been proved that my ‘zero loss’ claim was correct.
The Comptroller and auditor general of India(CAG) chief Vinod Rai in his report had estimated a massive presumptive loss of Rs 1.76 lakh crore to the state exchequer by allocating 2G spectrum licences at allegedly throwaway prices. But Sibal had slammed the report at the time, stating not a single rupee was stolen.
A Delhi court on Thursday acquitted all the accused including former telecom minister A Raja and DMK MP Kanimozhi in the alleged multi-thousand crore rupee 2G spectrum scam.
