The DMK had not recommended anyone for an particular post, Karunanidhi said amid the storm over the Niira Radia tapes about hectic lobbying for the telecom portfolio for Raja before government formation in 2009.
Since Raja was telecom minister when UPA was power in 2007, the same portfolio was allocated to him in 2009, he said in the party mouthpiece, Murasoli.
Refuting reports that Raja was made telecom minister following telephonic conversations between "two persons", he said certain media had blown up the matter, which was "baseless."
On the 2G spectrum issue, Karunanidhi charged certain sections of the media saying that instead of reporting what Comptroller and Auditor General had stated they were "writing wrongly" about the whole issue.
He also claimed Raja had adopted the same policy of the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance government in allocation of spectrum.
