New Delhi:  Politician Amar Singh has been formally chargesheeted under the Prevention of Corruption Act for offering bribes to three BJP MPs in 2008. A crore was reportedly given in cash to the MPs for supporting Prime Minister Manmohan Singh during a trust vote in July that year.

Sudheendru Kulkarni, who was then an advisor to senior BJP leader LK Advani, had allegedly planned the entire operation to expose the willingness of the UPA to buy votes.  He will face criminal charges that include inducement.

The trio of BJP MPs - Ashok Argal, Faggan Singh Kulaste and Mahavir Bhagora - had marched into the Lok Sabha waving bundles of cash hours before the trust vote began.  Prime Minister Manmohan Singh survived the no-confidence motion.

Rest at,
