Q.

The reports allege that Maran deliberately delayed issuing spectrum licenses to Aircel's sister concern, Dishnet Wireless, when it was owned by Sivasankaran. He issued the licenses soon after it changed hands to Ananda Krishnan who owns Maxis.
Within four months of the spectrum allocation, Astro - a sister company of Maxis - got cabinet nod to buy Rs.675 crore equity in Sun Direct DTH, a company owned by Maran's brother Kalanidhi Maran and family. Politics to promote business - What do you say ?

People get into politics not because of they want serve the public. Their definition of public is limited to their family tree. It is only to further their own cause to amass wealth, they get into to powerful positions.

Another standard method that is followed - as a part of the Cabinet, they are privy to the information about a particular area being developed as Industrial area, software park, etc. Politicians buy acres of land around the area, develop the software park with govt money, so that the valuation of the property around the place goes up multifold and sell them partly ! That is how Raja made money through Sadiq Bacha !
