MMS blamed PMO officials for 2G scam.
Telecom minister Raja’s letter was sent to PMO for scrutiny.
Raja’s letters outlining his intended decisions which eventually led to the 2G scam.
MMS did not use his brain to understand the contents of the letter.
MMS also not bothered to understand the contents of the letter through PMO.
That means PMO was running the country without PM being involved in any of the affairs.

In Coal scam MMS did quite opposite.
He has completely ignored the recommendation of the Coal ministry. His approval has violated the established procedure and already approved guidelines which clearly resulted in defeating the efforts of NLC to establish a 2000 MW Power Plant in Odisha. His deliberate action thus resulted in loss to NLC which was a PSU and facilitated huge profits to a private company. He does want accept responsibility or accountability for the loss to the national exchequer

In 2G scam MMS just closed his eyes and in Coalgate he took undue interest in allocation of mines violating all the guidelines.

Krishna-anna. I am surprised your Yeddi is ***** *****. Looks like you seem to have a share in it. Don't point finger at others as there are 4 pointing at you. The entire India and people who live in it are utterly corrupt just like you and me. I don't expect this country to ever come up to the international standard as it is riddled with all possible controversies - Rape, cheating, corruption, communal disharmony, total silence from the PM when his fragmented parties have field day at the cost of minorities. One MP makes comment about color when the other says tobacco consumption is safe and third one is hell bent on Ghar-wapasi. So, this is what you call development? Looks like you have some problems.

Congis can get away with any crimes. Starting from Bofors, 2G, CWG, coalgate, Helicopter, submarine, Hasan Ali., Vodra land scam,National Herald no one gets prosecuted. They are scientific in corruption. Have decades of experience corruption. Not like Yedurappa/ Banguru Laxman who were victims of petty corruption.
They are united in looting the nation. They don't let down each other.
