As a part of AAP's "pol khol" campaign, the tapes against the "beimaan" politicians dated back to 2010, before Kanimozhi and then telecom minister A. Raja were arrested in the 2G case.
When asked about the authenticity of the tapes, the AAP leaders that the voices in the tape matched with that of the people concerned and that the conversation was uninterrupted, without any breaks. However, they are yet to undergo forensic examination.
"We got it from a reliable source. We have verified that the voices match with the voices of the people in the conversation. Also, the conversation flow is natural and there are no breaks," Bhushan said.
Revealing a strong nexus between politicians and corporates, the AAP leader alleged that Rs 200 cr was [aid to Kalainagar TV, which was owned by the Karunanidhi's family. And the payee was businessman and 2G accused Shahid Balwa's DB Reality.
"In fact, although the money was shown as a loan, the tapes revealed it wasn't so," said Bhushan. He also demanded CBI probe into it.
However, late in the evening, Karunanidhi dismissed the claims saying, "It is all lies, all lies, all lies."
