Telecom minister Kapil Sibal on Wednesday attacked BJP leader Yashwant Sinha for making wild and baseless allegations of a scam in the TRAIs recommendations for a cut in spectrum pricing, saying such statements were being made with an eye on the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Yashwant Sinha smells a scam around the corner at every stage. Previously, I remember the BJP targeted the government, saying that TRAI recommendations were not accepted and therefore there is a scam. Now, if the government were to partially accept TRAIs recommendations, there is a scam," he told reporters here.
