This week, Truth vs Hype tracks A Raja, the man at the centre of one of India's biggest scams, as he makes his first public appearance after a year in jail. But far from appearing subdued, A Raja thumbed his nose at the justice system in front of roaring crowds in a series of public meetings across his constituency in Nilgiri Hills. Was this - as Raja and the DMK claimed - a spontaneous event, or was it a carefully stage managed one? If so, why is the DMK valorising a man who is associated across India with corruption in politics? And does Raja's brazen confidence have disturbing implications for the future of the 2G case?
