Lucknow, Jan 31: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on Wednesday favoured a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the release of poll campaign CDs with alleged communal content, for which Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Rajnath Singh faces charges.

The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief apparently responded favourably to appeals by the BJP to soften her stand against Singh and senior BJP leader Lalji Tandon earlier in the day, but she surprised the party late in the evening by favouring a central investigation.

During the assembly elections in April-May 2007, some controversial CDs did the rounds amid reports that Singh and former state minister Tandon were among those who formally released them as part of the election campaign.
