Kathmandu, Sep 4: Maoists have allegedly sought China for financial aid of Rs.50 crore in order to buy lawmakers in the upcoming poll for Nepal's new Premier where their leader Prachanda is to contest in the election.

In a telephonic conversation, the tape which was leaked to the media in Kathmandu, Foreign Department chief Krishna Bahadur Mahara was heard asking an unknown Chinese official for Rs 50 crore to buy 50 MPs from Terai-based Madhesi parties.

Sources said that Mahara conversation in the audio tape was broadcasted by local TV channels.

However, Mahara completely dismissed the tape as "fabricated, misleading and fictitious."

Leader Prachanda had been rejected in the previous five rounds of voting in the Parliament for the post of Prime Minister.
