New Delhi, Sept 10 : The 2G telecom scam may have scalped the former telecom minister A Raja forcing him to cool his heels in Tihar jail for more than year, but the Department of Telecommunications website surely takes the cake.
Raja was divested of the communications portfolio as far back as November 2010 and he spent more than a year -- from February 2011 to May 2012 -- in jail.
He may have been out on bail since May this year, and his trusted aide and personal assistant, RK Chandolia, too may have spent time in jail at the same time for having been hand in glove with him.
But the DoT website dot.gov.in/hindi/hindex.htm on clicking the link for "Officers " shows this at dot.gov.in/hindi/hwhoiswho1.htm : A raja is still the minister for communications, R K chandolia is his PA. Gurudas Kamat is the minister of state, and P j Thomas (remember our CVC?) is chairman of Telecom Commission.
The English version of the site, of course, has the correct version with the latest update.
Maybe, the DoT might be busy calling bids for Hindi translators.
