Ranchi: The Wikileaks `expose` on alleged
cash-for-vote during UPA-I trust vote in 2008 found its echo
in Jharkhand assembly for the second day today when CPI
(ML-Liberation) MLA Vinod Kumar Singh sought to drag both the
Congress and the ruling coalition partner JMM into the
controversy.

"A newspaper report today published that the Congress
had given money to some JMM MPs during the trust vote. The
matter has been raised in Parliament, it’s my responsibility
to raise the issue in this assembly (too)," Singh said just
before the zero hour.

BJP MLA Raghuvar Das yesterday demanded resignation of
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh alleging the controversy
tarnished the image of the country.
