Two days after the special court in Delhi acquitted former telecom minister A Raja and Rajya Sabha MP and Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) chief daughter Kanimozhi along with others in 2G scam case, Raja and Kanimozhi arrived in Chennai on Saturday.
The city along with the airport wore a festive look as people and DMK supporters gathered in large numbers to welcome Raja and Kanimozhi.
The airport was all decked up with DMK flags in order to mark their return from Delhi.
They were received by DMK’s working president MK Stalin, who is the brother of Kanimozhi.
A sea of party workers, most of them wearing white shirts, cheered as Kanimozhi, emerged from the airport, hands folded and a smile on her face.
Soon after landing in Chennai, Raja and Kanimozhi headed straight to DMK chief Karunanidhi’s residence in Gopalapuram to meet him, where dozens of excited party workers were waiting in a show of strength to celebrate by beating drums and dancing to their pleasure.
On Thursday, the special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court had acquitted all the accused in the scam.
The CBI had announced it would challenge the verdict, citing the court might not have appreciated the evidence in its proper perspective.
The two DMK leaders were among the others acquitted of corruption and money-laundering when mobile network licences were issued in 2008. A special court in Delhi said the CBI failed to provide any evidence of a conspiracy among politicians, bureaucrats and top corporate executives.happy wheels
