September 30: Senior BJP Leader Arun Shourie says ministers did not follow any rules when it came to telecom. Then to protect these ministers and the government, blame was laid on officers, which made them reluctant to take action, he says. “As a telecom minister, I got operators to resolve issues and withdraw all cases against their rivals and the government,” he says, adding that telcos should compete in the market and not in government corridors.
