BJP MPs allege bribe by SP
Tribune News Service
New Delhi, July 22
In an unprecedented development, on the second day of the confidence vote debate at the special session of Parliament today, three BJP MPs from Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan walked to the well of the Lok Sabha and poured a bag full of currency notes worth Rs 1 crore.
BJP MPs Ashok Argal, Faggan Singh Kulaste and Mahavir Bagora, led by Argal, alleged that they were offered the money by one Sanjiv Saxena or Shrivastava on behalf of the Samajwadi Party. An indignant BJP/NDA, holding Prime Minister Manmohan Singh responsible for this, sought his resignation right away.
The proceedings had to be suspended as BJP members followed by other NDA members rushed into the well, raising slogans against the government alleging that it had offered them cash bribes to abstain from voting to ensure the success of the confidence vote.
Around 3.30 pm while CPM leader Basudeb Acharia was speaking and Deputy Speaker Charanjit Singh Atwal was presiding, the BJP members walked up to the table of the House with a black bag and poured out 10 bundles of currency notes of Rs 1,000 denomination.
The House was thrown out of gear, with members from the treasury and opposition benches rushing into the well and shouting down each other.
Most of what was being said was not audible. Despite repeated attempts by the watch and ward staff to restore order, members used their mobile phones to capture the wads of notes on their cell cameras.
The impact of the sudden production of currency notes on the table of the House was so dramatic that for a couple of minutes even important leaders and ministers did not know how to react. A shocked UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi sat flabbergasted as did the otherwise politically sharp Lalu Prasad.
Eventually Lalu Prasad recovered composure and could be seen gesticulating that the person concerned should be arrested.
In the meantime, the House was adjourned and the Speaker sought a meeting of leaders of political parties as Leader of the Opposition L.K. Advani came rushing in and going directly to the Speaker’s chamber.In the meantime the drama shifted to the corridors of Parliament.
Outside, Advani alleged: “This is a black day for Indian Parliament. Never before this was witnessed in a confidence vote. We had complained of horse-trading, but we were asked to provide evidence.”
The BJP called this a sting operation claiming that SP general secretary Amar Singh on behalf of the government and the Congress, was offering its MPs inducements to abstain from the confidence vote.
Advani said: “ My three MPs informed me that they have been offered cash. Then we decided to present this amount on the table of the House. The members asked a TV channel to record everything. And everything is now on a CD.” “Now whether they win or lose the confidence vote, they have lost the larger battle already.”
BJP president Rajnath Singh spoke in the same vein. He said: “We have been alleging horse-trading for the last four days. Now it is for the Speaker to decide. We shall see what ruling the Speaker gives.”
The treasury benches rejected the incident as a “deliberate drama enacted by the BJP when they were certain to lose the vote of confidence.”
Lalu Prasad said: “Anyone who has taken bribe or offered bribe, should be punished. This is a serious matter and the highest inquiry should be held.”
He also alleged that his party MP Pappu Yadav was offered Rs 7 crore as bribe by BJP deputy leader Vijay Kumar Malhotra. Incidentally, Yadav repeated the allegation to the TV channels in Parliament House.
Science and Technology minister Kapil Sibal said: “Parliamentary democracy reached a nadir today. Never before something like this has happened in the House. Nothing can be brought into the House without the permission of the Speaker. So far, the police was barred from entering the House. But this will be the first time that police investigators will enter the precincts of the House to investigate the matter.”
Meanwhile, chief editor of CNN-IBN Rajdeep Sardesai submitted the CD of the operation to the Speaker to help in the investigations.M-DEAL IN HOUSE

Privilege notice against 3 MPs
New Delhi, July 23
The Samajwadi Party today complained to Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee about the three BJP MPs who had alleged that they had been bribed by the party to abstain in the trust vote that was won by the Manmohan Singh government.
"I have written a complaint about breach of privilege to Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee," party's chief whip in the Lok Sabha Mohan Singh said.
There were dramatic scenes during the debate on the trust vote yesterday with three MPs from the BJP — Ashok Argal (Morena), Faggan Singh Kulaste (Mandla) and Mahavir Bhagora (Salumber) — displaying wads of currency in the Lok Sabha, alleging that they had been bribed by the Samajwadi Party.
The three MPs said the money was given to them by Samajwadi Party general secretary Amar Singh and they also named Congress leader Ahmed Patel.
Mohan Singh said he had cited three points while moving the breach of privilege against the three MPs.
"My name was announced and I had stood up to give my speech when these three MPs jumped into the well and restricted the speech."
The three had not given prior notice to either the Speaker or the presiding officer. "They displayed bundles of currency notes as the whole nation and the world saw in disgust. They have maligned the temple of Indian democracy and tarnished the image of the country."
Third, he has pointed out that carrying bundles of currency notes into the House was prohibited. "How could they get so much of money inside the House? It is prohibitory material. This is a breach of Parliament," Mohan Singh said. — IANS
