New Delhi, Jul 28 (UNI) The BJP today wondered if the serial blasts in Bangalore and Ahmedabad were intended to divert the attention of irate Muslim community from the Confidence Vote on the Indo-US nuclear deal and the 'cash for vote' scandal that rocked Lok Sabha on July 22.

Senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj said it can't be mere coincidence but was a circumstantial evidence that the capital cities of two BJP ruled states -- Gujarat and Karnataka, were targetted four days after the UPA government showed its majority using ''questionable means''.

She asked Congress general secretary and former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Digvijay Singh to disclose his source of information for levelling allegation that the money displayed on the tables of Lok Sabha was brought in Delhi by Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan and the currency was drawn from a Bhopal branch of State Bank of Indore.

''If Mr Singh's information is correct than he must have come to know from the sources which gave money for the three BJP MPs or from the Lok Sabha Secretariat which had kept it sealed under its custody'', she said.

Ms Swaraj said Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee had replied to the letter of Leader of the Opposition L K Advani informing him that the Lok Sabha Panel could take a decision on allowing the tapes to be telecast by the channel which had conducted the sting operations on cash for vote scandal.

Mr Advani had written to Mr Chatterjee contending that tapes in investigations like this could not be a 'private property' of any media organisation and the information and its contents must be shared both with the people at large as well as with the whistle-blowers(in this case , the three MPs), without whose permission and cooperation the channel could not have conducted the investigation.
