Controversial Past• In late 2010, the 2G spectrum scandal scam worth INR 176,000 broke and A. Raja was jailed in February 2011. The trial of A. Raja, MP Kanimozhi and 12 other accused from telecom companies and the government were charged in the corruption scandal, which began in November 2011. Strange this was that, in 2007, Member of Parliament Rajeev Chandrasekhar raised the issue and challenged the government's call to allocate 2G spectrum without calling for tenders. He informed the then Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, about the wrong methods of Raja in the 2G spectrum allocation.
A. Raja - 2G Scam

On 20 February 2012, the Supreme Court of India declared the allotment of spectrum as "unconstitutional and arbitrary", the canceled all 122 licences issued in 2008 by A. Raja, and said "Raja wanted to favour some companies at the cost of the public exchequer" and "virtually gifted away important national asset."

• Just after A. Raja became a cabinet minister in the NDA government of 2004, Sadiq Batcha, a friend of A. Raja, moved his base from Perambalur to Chennai and formed a real estate firm called 'Green House Promoters', which had Raja's nephew Paramesh Kumar as joint managing director and Raja's brother A Kaliyaperumal and Raja's wife Parameswari as directors, though Paramewari resigned from the post of directors due to investigations. In 2008, Batcha started another real estate firm called 'Equaas Estates Pvt Ltd', which had Raja's wife Parameswari as a director. The firm had a huge turnover of 755 crores in just a matter of 2 years, largely due to the involvement of Raja. Batcha went under the CBI scanner during the 2G Spectrum scam due to his alleged involvement with Raja. On 16 March 2011, Batcha allegedly committed suicide at his Chennai residence. Police found a suicide note according to which he took this step due to his media trial which completely tarnished his image.
