In the court, Kushwaha said that Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati was the head of the core committee and State Chief Secretary was the other in-charge. Mayawati's decision was the final one. He denied his position to finalise the decisions related to the allocation of funds and the work assigned to the companies. He said that he had never allocated fund for the NRHM work.
Even BSP MLA Ram Pal Singh Jaiswal also denied that funds was never siphoned from his private firms.
Defending Kushwaha and Jaiswal, Ajay Vikram Singh, advocate told CBI that now Mayawati should be interrogated about the allocation of funds in NRHM.
