A freak recording CD which was sent out to several news channels have created a big controversy for the recently appointed people’s representative and Co-Chairman of Lokpal Bill, Shashi Bhushan.
The CD which was sent out to several news channels is said to have some controversial conversation between Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, his once-close-friend-turned-foe Amar Singh and Lokpal bill co-chairman Shanti Bhushan.
Allegedly, the conversation has Amar Singh acting as a mediator between Mulayam Singh and Shanti Bhushan. Shanti Bhushan is apparently trying to tell Mulayam that his son, Prashant Bhushan, can help Mulayam.
Shanit Bhushan and Mulayam Singh have denied the truth of any such conversation ever taking place. Shanti Bhushan has even gone ahead and filed a case with the Delhi police under Section 469, IPC, and the forensic investigation is said to start very soon. Mulayam has also denied ever having any such conversation with Shashi Bhushan. Interestingly, Amar Singh has not yet completely denied the conversation. All he had to say was “The tape is not new, the leakage might be new, the incident is not new. It is a wicked type of leak.”
It must be brought to notice here that this is the second attack on the integrity of Mr. Shashi Bhushan ever since he became the co-chairman of the Lokpal Bill. Few days back, news came out that he has illegally not paid more than 1 Crore tax for his house in Allahabad.
