BJP happy to carry a sting operation on Congress: Sushma

Sushma Swaraj
New Delhi, Mar 25: Cash-for-votes is a new term recently coined in Indian politics, though the seed of this term was planted three years back in 2008. A sting operation by media organisation previously showed Congress allegedly giving bribes to buy trust votes for Indo-US nuclear deal. Whistle-blower WikiLeaks added fresh fuel on the flame.

Now, BJP leader Sushma Swaraj, assaulting Congress over the cash-for-votes issue, claimed that BJP does not mind to operate any sting to prove any misconducts by Sonia Gandhi's party.

"If the BJP did plan a sting to prove that the Congress was willing to buy MPs to survive a trust vote in 2008, there's nothing wrong with that," NDTV quoted Mrs Swaraj.

However, Mrs Swaraj rejected all allegations against BJP that the party directed the sting operation in 2008 where Congress leaders were allegedly shown offering bribes to BJP leaders.

Meanwhile, the BJP MP Ashok Argal and former MPs Faggan Singh Kulaste and Mahavir Bhagora, who had claimed that Congress tried to bye their trust votes, came back to the spotlight.

The BJP members stated, "The party said humare kuch log nalayak nikle, kuch nayak nikle (the party says some people are fool and some are heroes). We are the heroes."

Congress led UPA government faced several corruption allegations recently but this time it seems they are completely cornered. Opposition parties, especially BJP did not leave a single opportunity to nail the ruling party. Parliament was stormed over the cash-for-votes controversy and PM's alleged "misleading" the House over the issue.

This time, it is Prime Minister Manmohan Singh who faced the most criticism from the Opposition. However, PM reiterated that the authenticity of such cables, which shows Congress' misconduct, are not acceptable.
