   After a long wait at last the former Union Cabinet minister for Telecom, Andimuthu Raja is arrested on 2nd day of February,2011 and is in CBI cusdody.


   According to a report of Times of India, Former Telecom Minister, A. Raja is involved in 2G spectrum Scam worth Rs. 1.76 Lakh crore and has been accused  of conspiring with the two officials to help certain companies to avail the 2G spectrum licence at a cheap rate. A. Raja and his two Officials has been charged U/S. 120-B of Indian Penal Code and U/S. 13(I), 13(2) and 13 (2D) of Prevention of Corruption Act.


   The arrest of A. Raja is an warning and a lesson to all the other corrupt politicians who thinks that they can criminally misappropriate the Public money and do whatever they desire and the law is in their hand.

   The fact that the  A. Raja in spite of being a present Member of Parliament and Former Union Cabinet Minister and his party is in Ministry could not save himself from the hand of Law for his wrong done, is an example that no-one is above the Law and the Law will take its own course and this example should be treated as  an warning and a lesson to all the other corrupt politicians that "No One Can Escape the Law".


   Whatever the political reason may be behind the arrest of A. Raja, but the fact is that by the Direction of the Hon'ble Supreme Court, the Central Bureau of Invstigation has to submit its progress report on 2G spectrum scam investigation within 10th February, 2011 and due to this this reason it became inevitable for CBI to arrest the alleged chief accused of 2G scam, A.RAja and his two officials for investigation purpose.


   Our Nation were anxiously waiting to see the culprit of this multicrore 2G scam behind the bar and the arrest of A. Raja is a triumphant moment for us. 


   A few month ago we have witnessed that the Maharashtra C.M. Ahok Chavan had to resign his post for his alleged involvement in Adarsh Society Scam.


   The Arrest of A. Raja also implies that Law will take its own Course. So, the Corrupt Politicians be-aware of Law and stop Corruption otherwise remember "No One Can Escape the Law".
