On Sunday, A Raja made allegations against Rai that some forces are working against the UPA government and they are using Vinod Rai as a tool to fulfil their goals.
He further alleged that Rai was a "contract killer" to kill UPA, demanding prosecution for abusing the power and cheating the nation.
"Vinod Rai should be prosecuted for cheating and abuse of power... (he) was a contract killer... His shoulder was used to kill UPA 2," Raja said during a media interaction following the launch of his book "2G Saga Unfolds".
A Raja has further accused Bharti Airtel chairman Sunil Bharti Mittal of conspiring against him to stop new telecom players from entering the market.
A Raja has recently been freed from all charges relating 2G scam by the Central Bureau of Investigation court.
In 2010, Vinod Rai was consistently in headlines for his unforgiving audits, ranging from the scathing report on the shoddy preparation for the Commonwealth Games to the spectrum allocations for second generation (2G) telecom services
