Main points of A Raja Interview
*I always knew I will be acquitted. That's why I started writing the book early on. Only 10 days before the verdict - did I give the book to the publisher.
*Vinod Rai was working towards a Conspiracy. The astronomical figure of 1.76 lakh crore sprang up from nowhere. He is hiding behind the constitutional immunity but there must be an enquiry conducted on his role and methods.
*The entire conspiracy was hatched to plan the downfall of UPA 2 Govt
*Vinod Rai has been suitably rewarded by the present Govt.
*Manmohan Singh was wrongly advised by his advisors like TKA Nair. He was miscommunicated about many things. We had a major communication gap
*I respect him but Manmohan Singh did not have a firm control over his Govt
*I have to ask that despite having all the intelligence agencies how did the UPA govt not know about Vinod Rai's conspiracy
*Talking about his politics and that of his party DMK after the 2G verdict, he said DMK will bounce back in Tamil Nadu politics. Rajnikant & Kamal Hasan won't hv any impact on TN politics.
