A report published in these columns earlier on the governmentís investigations of the role of a leading lobbyist in the award of a Unified Access Services (UAS) telecom license to Unitech in 2007-08 has sent ripples across the corridors of power. As a consequence of the Powerbuzz story, senior bureaucrats in key ministries such as Finance, Home, and Telecommunications, among others, are reportedly fighting shy of the lobbyist.

According to sources, bureaucrats are ducking calls from the lobbyist, fearing that any association with the controversial lobbyist would jeopardize their position in the government. So pervasive is the fear that, sources say, even journalists covering the various ministries are avoiding the lobbyist.
