CUDDALORE: Around 150 DMK members from Perambalur and Ariyalur districts and also from Ooty have been camping in Delhi since Friday, expecting bail for former telecom minister A Raja. The Delhi court is expected to issue an order on Tuesday for a bail plea that was moved by Raja on May 9.

Raja is the only accused in the 2G case who is yet to be released on bail. As soon as the news about Raja applying for bail spread, around 150 DMK party men from his home district Perambalur, neighboring district Ariyalur and his constituency Nilgiris thronged the Delhi court on May 11, expecting that he would be granted bail that date itself. Since the HC reserved the order till May 15, the party men decided to stay in Delhi till then, hoping that Raja would get bail surely.

Sources said that even if Raja gets bail on Tuesday, he would be able to arrive in TN only on Saturday as the hearing is still going on.
