Cong was not beneficiary of cash-for-vote: Bansal
New Delhi: Parliamentary Affairs Minister
Pawan Kumar Bansal on Tuesday rejected the allegations that the UPA
Government was the beneficiery of the 2008 `cash-for-vote`
scam saying it did not need the votes of three BJP MPs who
claimed to have been bribed.
"Congress Government did not need any votes. You can
check records and see how many votes we won," he said reacting
to queries on the alleged attempt to bribe MPs ahead of the
July 2008 confidence vote in Parliament.
The special court hearing the case today rejected bail to
Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh and former BJP MPs Faggan Singh
Kulaste and Mahabir Singh Bhagora for their alleged role in
Bansal made it clear that there was no need for Prime
Minister Manmohan Singh to make a statement on the issue.
He also criticised the BJP for not allowing the Parliament
to function saying that Parliament is the place where such
issues should be discussed.
