Chennai: Former Union Minister and prime accused in the 2G case A Raja today termed as ‘cooked up story' the charge sheet filed by Enforcement Directorate referring to the alleged role of DMK Treasurer M K Stalin in the scam.

Speaking to reporters at the airport here, Raja referred to the chargesheet which mentioned a meeting between Stalin and Swan Telecom Pvt Ltd promoter Shahid Usman Balwa and said, “No such meeting took place between Stalin and Balwa at no point of time. It is a cooked up story. It is a story created by the ED.”

Defending his leader, Raja alleged “It is a clear political attempt to tarnish the image of my leader Stalin.”

To a query on who was making the political attempt, he said, “the party who was in power.”

When asked whether it was Congress, he said, “Yes.”

There were reports in a section of the press that based on the statements of Raja's close associate and business partner Sadhick Batcha recorded by it, the ED in its chargesheet, has mentioned a meeting between Stalin and Balwa.

Raja also wondered why the ED was now coming up with such a claim about Stalin's meeting with Balwa.

He further contended that the statements were not valid since Batcha is no more.
