Bangaru Laxman happy over Tarun's and Tehelka's fall

Bangaru Laxman happy over Tarun's and Tehelka's fall
Hyderabad, Nov 28: While Tehelka's former editor-in-chief Tarun Tejpal is being probed for rape charges, there are many who are happy over his fall. Tehelka's sting operations have exposed many corrupt leaders in the past and have earned the magazine and Tejpal several foes. 

One of them is Bangaru Laxman, who had to undergo jail term, thanks to Tehelka's 'Operation West End'. Laxman had to resign from the post of president of the BJP after he was exposed. He was convicted by a court in 2012.

Laxaman, who is now out on bail,is being treated for health problems at a Hyderabad hospital. The Dalit leader was stung by the Tehelka in a defence deal in 2000-2001. He was seen taking Rs 1 lakh bribe in a video released by the Tehelka.

He was the national president of BJP and before that a minister of state for Railways in the NDA government.

Laxman doesn't hide his glee. AS reported by media in Hyderabad, Laxman said, "both Tejpal and Asaram should be kept in the same jail and Tejpal should not be given any extra privileges. He has always been a menace. I am glad, he has been exposed finally. He even used call girls to sting others. He has no right to talk about ethics. Hope, he will spend a long time in a jail."
