Former Union Minister A Raja, the main accused in 2G spectrum scam, and Suresh Kalmadi, accused in the Commonwealth Games scam, have been made members of two separate Parliamentary Standing Committees.

Raja, who represents DMK in the Lok Sabha, has been nominated to the Standing Committee on Energy. Kalmadi, Congress member of the Lok Sabha, has been nominated to the Standing Committee on External Affairs.

The Parliamentary Standing Committees examine the bills and give suggestions to the proposed legislations related to the ministries concerned.

Raja, who was arrested in connection with the 2G scam on 2 Feb last year, is on bail since 15 May this year. Kalmadi also spent about nine months in jail before being released on bail on 19 January this year.

DMK MP Kanimozhi, who was also accused in some cases related to the 2G spectrum allocation, has been nominated to the Standing Committee on Home Affairs.
