Cash-for-votes: Advani meets 'scapegoat' Kulkarni in Tihar

LK Advani
New Delhi, Sept 28: Senior BJP leader LK Advani along with Arun Jaitley reached Tihar jail in New Delhi to meet the "scapegoat" of Cash-for-votes scam - Sudheendra Kulkarni on Wednesday, Sept 28.

Kulkarni, the one time right hand of Advani, appeared before a Delhi court seeking interim bail on Tuesday. However, the self-claimed whistle-blower of the scam has been sent to judicial custody till Oct 1.

Before his arrest, Kulkarni had stated, "I was only a whistle blower and my purpose was to expose the rampant corruption."

"There is no reason to deny interim bail to a person whose regular bail is pending (in the court) and who was not arrested during the investigation,' hoped Kulkarni.

Many claim that Kulkarni has become the scapegoat over cash-for-votes scam which had rocked the Parliament ahead of the trust vote over Indo-US nuclear deal in 2008.
