New Delhi: Andimuthu Raja, the former telecom minister was acquitted along with seventeen others in the 2G scam verdict given by CBI court. Now Mr. Raja has been invited to give TED Talk on fighting corruption.

While confirming the news on TED Talk, Mr. Raja said, “Instead of talking to every media house, I thought it would be good to give one TED talk on this topic. It will happen in this weekend. This is being arranged by TED organization, most of the major news channels in India are talking to them to get the rights to show it live. The talk will be available for online streaming on coldstar.com.”

Mr. Raja told how his stand has been vindicated. Whatever he did, brought a ‘revolution’ in telecom sector which ultimately helped the masses and poor.

Mr. Raja said, “Not only that, my actions in 2008 have generated so much discussions. Big jump in TRPs of news channels, benefit to print media, Panelists, many tried to take credit for unearthing 2G scam which was not a scam at all in first place. People sat in cold winters in Ramlila Maidan using my case wrongfully to come to power and make India corruption free. I will elaborate these points during my TED Talk. Request all of you to watch it live today evening.”

Richard Williams, the spokesperson for TED while speaking to us said, “As an organization, we arrange different talk shows under the slogan ‘ideas worth sharing’. Today who is better than Mr. A Raja in India to talk on fighting corruption.”

Mr. Williams said, “The recent verdict will give fillip to so many who are wrongfully trapped under various corruption cases. I am sure Mr. Raja’s case will be an inspiration for generations, go fight it out, one day truth will come out.”
