Bhimnagar: Team Anna member Manish Sisodiya on Friday said that expenditure details of helicopters used by leaders like Rahul Gandhi, Mayawati, Mulayam Singh Yadav and Nitin Gadkari would be sought after the completion of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls.

"Expenditure details would be sought from leaders who have been using helicopters in campaigning like Rahul Gandhi, Mayawati, Mulayam Singh Yadav and Nitin Gadkari to see that they have not taken them from industrial houses", Sisodiya said in a meeting here.

Referring to Rahul Gandhi`s statement that the situation in UP makes him angry, Sisodiya wondered if this anger was because Mulayam Singh Yadav did not give a share in the police recruitment scam to the Congress.

Targetting both the Congress and SP, he said that these two parties would have to get rid of dynastic politics in order to save democracy.

Alleging that two leaders of the state were won over during the debate on the Lokpal Bill in the parliament, he said that his team would strive for a strong Lokpal and Lokayukta or else start an agitation for the same.

Referring to the SP`s election manifesto promise of providing laptops, he said that it could take the shape of a loptop purchase scam. He appealed to the voters to cast their vote to give a befitting reply to the corrupt.
