New Delhi, Apr 21: Anna Hazare started a mission to remove corruption from the country and one of the prominent Hazare followers was - former Law Minister Shanti Bhushan. A nation-wide protest led by Hazare forced the government to set up a committee to draft the anti-corruption bill - "Lokpal bill". Shanti Bhushan was appointed as the co-chairman of the ten member joint committee.

Now, Shanti Bhushan and his family has suddenly faced wrath from all corners over a 'CD and land controversy'. Former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh asked Shanti Bhushan and his son Prashant Bhushan to resign from the Lokpal panel.

Accepting his conversation with Shanti Bhushan, Amar Singh on Thursday, Apr 21 said, "We had a talk in 2006." Mr Singh also added, "Shanti had taken a chopper sponsored by me to meet Samajwadi Party rebels."

Amar Singh hurled his attack on the Bhushans after Delhi Police claimed that the controversial CD, which allegedly contains a conversation between Shanti Bhushan, Mulayam Singh Yadav and Amar Singh, was not doctored.

"Recorded conversation is in continuity, no abrupt change in speech signal has been detected," police sources informed.

Meanwhile, the former SP leader also stated that he has sent five copies of the CD to several agencies to probe the originality of the CD.

However, another Lokpal panel member, RTI activist - Arvind Kejriwal stated, "No pressure on the Bhushans to quit the joint committee."

The RTI activist also claimed, "I'm committed to produce a concrete anti-corruption law in the country."
