Hindustani says Congress, SP are behind cash-for-votes scam

Suhail Hindustani
New Delhi, Aug 13: The cash-for-votes scam seems to be heading nowhere as the accused are making it a habit to give statements that seem to cover all the major political parties in India. First it was Sanjeev Saxena, who alleged that some BJP leaders connived with BSP leaders to bring down the UPA government. And now it is another accused, Suhail Hindustani who has alleged that top Congress and Samajwadi Party leaders were involved in the offence.

In his bail application before a trial court, Hindustani said, "The material available with the investigating agency clearly suggests and discloses the fact that persons who are members and associated with Samajwadi Party and ruling Congress party namely Amar Singh, Reoti Raman Singh and Ahmed Patel were behind the institution of alleged offence/crime."

Alleging that the Delhi Police has enough evidence to support his claims, he said, "There are clinching evidence available with investigating agency which once again clearly establishes the fact that the money given by accused Sanjeev Saxena to original complainant was arranged/given by aforesaid persons (leaders) with the objective to save the then minority government of ruling party ie Congress party."

Blaming the Delhi police for wrongly making him an accused, he said that his role was "only to an extent to expose rampant corruption in Indian democratic system".

He called for making himself a witness in the case and said, "The applicant herein rather should have been arrayed as witness by the prosecution but instead of arraying him as a witness, he was made an accused by the investigating agency with the sole objective to destroy the case itself so that the truth should not come out."

The court has admitted his plea and issued a notice to Crime Branch of Delhi Police and sought its response on August 18.
