"Though the trial court verdict says nobody was guilty of corruption, investigating agencies will study the case history and look into it", he said.

Giving a relief to the Congress and its ally DMK, a special CBI court has acquitted Former Telecom Minister A Raja and DMK leader M Karunanidhi's daughter M Kanimozhi and other accused in the 2G scam case of the previous UPA regime.

"It was a canard spread by the BJP and the likes of Anna Hazare".

The protest march towards the Parliament building started from Jai Singh Road with party workers raising slogans against the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

It also called for the electoral tribunal "to transparently and fully review any challenges filed by political parties". Violent protests erupted across the country, in which Amnesty International said at least 14 people had been killed.

The allegations of corruption against the Congress did not stop there as the "taint" of running a scam-ridden government by the grand old party continues to haunt it till now.

It's also a shot in the arm to the Congress, now led by the recently anointed party president Rahul Gandhi, coming on the back of the party's creditable performance in the recent Gujarat elections under his leadership.

Taking a "moral high ground" over the verdict, the Congress reiterated its earlier stand that there was no scam at all, and it was a propaganda run by the BJP to come to power at the Centre.

The Congress also claimed that BJP leaders like Sushma Swaraj and Mr. Jaitley as Opposition leaders wasted Rs. 750 crore of tax payers' money by disrupting 500 hours of Parliament over a period of three years for what it now calls "self-manufactured" scam. BJP spokeperson GVL Narsimha Rao said the judgement is a scathing indictment of the Mannohan Singh's government and his office. Given that the DMK was a former partner in the UPA, the verdict could boost Congress attempts to stitch together a larger anti-BJP alliance in the country.

They also made Flowers uncomfortable in the pocket, as the senior quarterback missed two would-be touchdowns early in the game. Wide receiver Keke Coutee , the Red Raiders' most explosive player, caught 11 passes for 187 yards and one touchdowns.

Rohatgi said that he too believed that the Patiala House Court's verdict was "absolutely sound" and there was no case of criminality in the 2G scam. He was also accused to have been the mastermind in the scam. "We did it in accordance with the policy prescription that we had at that point in time", Sibal said, adding that the telecom sector was in dire straits exclusively because of the BJP and Rai.

"Will all those people, including Modi, Jaitley and other BJP leaders, who for years made false propaganda and lies their stepping stone to come to power, apologise to the country?" asked Congress communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala. Advocate Kapil Sibal said that no irregularities had occurred in the allocation of licences.

The CBI had alleged that there was a loss of Rs 30,984 crore to the exchequer in allocation of licences for the 2G spectrum which were scrapped by the Supreme Court court on February 2, 2012.
