DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Friday took a dig at the draft JPC report which accuses former Telecom Minister A Raja of "misleading" the Prime Minister on the 2G spectrum allocation issue.

"How can one believe that a Minister misled the Prime Minister?," Karunanidhi said reacting to reports in this regard.

Asked whether he would give any advice to Raja on the issue, Karunanidhi told reporters here, "He was a minister of the department. I don't have to give him any advice that he doesn't know. Justice should be given in the right way."

Raja is likely to arrive in the city today from Delhi.

The Joint Parliamentary Committee probing the 2G scam in its draft report has given a clean chit to the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and accused Raja of misleading Singh.
