India's Telecom Minister Quits
Raja's name is likely to be synonymous with the 2G spectrum furor -- but is this entirely fair?
The ousted minister is not totally wrong when he claims he has managed to break the cartel of incumbent mobile operators, a move that ultimately led to lower tariffs. That, in turn, benefited ordinary mobile users and helped to increase teledensity in the country.
The government has yet to announce his successor: prime minister Manmohan Singh will be handling the telecom portfolio for the time being.
