An accused in the 2G spectrum allocation scam case, he also claimed that the CBI wanted him to "implicate" Arun Shourie and Ratan Tata in the case.
In his self-published book, "The Complete Story of Indian Reforms: 2G, Power and Private Enterprise - A Practitioner's Diary', Baijal, who was appointed head of the telecom watchdog by the NDA government in 2003, said the 2G scam trail began in the tenure of Dayanidhi Maran as Telecom Minister during UPA government.
"They (CBI) had warned me in each case that I would be harmed if I didn't cooperate. Incidentally, this was exactly what the eminent economist Prime Minister had told me would happen if I did not cooperate in their scheme of things in the 2G case," Baijal writes in an apparent reference to 2G case and disinvestment issues.
There were no immediate comments available from the former Prime Minister, while Baijal said, "I have said everything. It is  100 percent correct and I have evidence to prove everything."
This is the third book in last more than a year that has come to haunt Singh and his government about state of affairs during his regime. The first book was written by his aide and media advisor Sanjaya Baru and later by former coal secretary P C Parekh who is also an accused in the case relating to coal blocks allocation.
