Ujjain, MP, July 23 (UNI) Bharatiya Janata Party MP and Secretary Prabhat Jha today dubbed the horse-trading issue raised in Parliament during yesterday's trust vote as 'the funeral of democracy'.
''United Progressive Alliance government has shamed the country's politics through a cash-for-vote scam to garner majority in the trust vote,'' Mr Jha told mediapersons here.
He said this shatters the trust of common people.
''BJP MPs are honest to the public and the way they flaunted cash in parliament showed that how opposition parties wanted to purchase them, and the public's trust,'' he said.
Mr Jha said a high-level probe into the matter must be carried out.
''Tickets will not be given to the candidates, whose images are tainted in public, and only those who come up to the party's expectation will be provided tickets in the coming assembly polls,'' he added.
