New Delhi, Aug 4: The 'cash for vote' sting operation took a new turn on Monday, Aug 4 with the UPA constituents Samajwadi Party(SP), RJD Lok Janshakti Party(LJP) coming out with a CD in a bid to prove that the entire sting was a conspiracy by the BJP to frame SP leader Amar Singh and bring down the dignity of Parliament and demanded a narco-analysis of the three BJP MPs to bring out the truth.

Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav and Amar Singh joined by Railway Minister and RJD President Lalu Prasad and LJP President Ram Vilas Paswan released the CD which contained a sting operation conducted on BJP MP Faggan Singh Kulaste and Sanjiv Saxena and tried to prove that it was the BJP leader Arun Jaitley who along with Saxena had send the money to frame the Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh.

The leaders said the July 22 episode in Parliament was a conspiracy of the BJP to break UPA and it brought disgrace to the nation by its action.

Today's meeting also signified the coming together of the three stalwarts of the JP movement after many years apart. Mr Mulayam Singh also remembered that he and Lalu Prasad were MLAs of the same batch.

The Samajwadi Party, which is facing threat from BSP in Uttar Pradesh that had emerged as a major constituent of the UNPA, had joined hands with the RJD and LJP which were facing a major challenge from the BJP-JD(U) combine in Bihar.

This indicated the new alignment of political parties in the Hindi hinterland in the next elections.

Strongly defending SP leader Amar Singh, Mr Mulayam Singh Yadav wondered that if the bribe money was paid to the BJP MPs, as they have charged, why did they not inform the police and took fingerprints of the cash to prove that it had come from Mr Singh.

Asserting that Mr Shahid Siddiqi had changed side and Sanjiv Saxena, whom the BJP MPs were saying to have supplied money to them on behalf of Amar Singh, had left along with them.

Stating that the confessional statement of Saxena, who had quit the job, was almost simlar to Kuleste's sting indicating that the BJP conspired against Mr Amar Singh and in the process brought down the dignity of Parliament.

Demanding action against the BJP MPs for bringing down the dignity of Parliament and democracy by the bribe money scandal, Mr Lalu Prasad demanded a narco-analysis test of the three BJP MPs, associated with the scandal, to bring out the truth. The RJD leader said fascist and communal forces (BJP) have ''ashamed the Parliament'' by bringing bribe money in Parliament and said absence of BJP leader L K Advani from the Lok Sabha during the discussion on the trust vote indicated that even he was a party to it. He said the CD released by Bhartiya Janshakti Party leader Uma Bharti yesterday also proved it.
