Why no action against Bhushans in CD case?: Amar

Raking up the controversial CD issue, Amar Singh asked why the Delhi Police was not taking action against Shanti Bhushan and Prashant Bhushan.

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.
