New Delhi: Raking up the controversial CD issue, expelled Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh on Tuesday asked why the Delhi Police was not taking action against lawyers Shanti Bhushan and Prashant Bhushan when it has found the CD involving them was genuine.

"Since the Delhi Police says that the CD - in which Bhushan senior purportedly offered to manage a judge through his lawyer son Prashant - is genuine, then their place is in Tihar jail and not next to Anna Hazare. If they can send me to jail (in cash-for vote scam), then why not them, I fail to understand," Singh told reporters here.

He wondered why Home Minister P Chidambaram was "afraid" of Prashant Bhushan. "...He should then term the CD as fake and end the matter," he said in reply to a poser on the issue.

Delhi Police had recently told a city court that the controversial CD of Shanti Bhushan was genuine.

Singh said Prashant Bhushan should also be charged for his statement supporting plebiscite in Jammu and Kashmir.

"Though I don't support such means, when he (Prashant Bhushan) was roughed up for his comments, I did not feel bad," Singh said.

He also slammed Team Anna for dubbing all politicians as corrupt but failing to provide an alternative to the people.

"They should suggest an alternative like the JP Movement provided an alternative post-Emergency...people always have a choice of rejecting their representatives during polls...Lalu Prasad was changed (in Bihar)," Singh said.

Referring to allegations on Arvind Kejriwal and Kiran Bedi, he said most Core Committee members of Team Anna were facing charges.
