Amar Singh says, Make cash-for-vote tapes public

Samajwadi Party general secretary Amar Singh on Friday, July 25, demanded that the tapes be made public and that allegations be proved.

Amar Singh told reporters that he had nothing to do with bribery and he had not met the three BJP MPs who had made the charge. Calling it a BJP-BSP conspiracy to malign him, he said he would leave public life if the charges were proved.

The Rajya Sabha MP said his party had lost six MPs during the confidence motion as they were kept in UP Bhavan under the watch of state officers. He said despite suffering poaching, his party did not resort to such tactics.

He said BJP leader V K Malhotra owed an answer to the nation on the allegation levelled by RJD MP Pappu Yadav that he visited him in Tihar jail and offered him money.
