BJP may take legal action against certain news channels and periodicals for showing the 'cash for vote' scam as the party's handiwork.
"We strongly denounce reports in a section of media that cash for vote scam was a BJP handiwork. Some people have even attacked LK Advani for it. We will not tolerate these things and the party will consider a legal course against such malicious and motivated reporting if needed," BJP spokesman Prakash Javdekar told reporters in New Delhi.
On expelled party leader Jaswant Singh's statement about Advani's involvement in the scam, he said, "he has talked only about the issue of whether the cash bundles should have been shown in the Parliament or sent to the Speaker."
Javdekar said even Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh also regrets making all out efforts to save the Government during the trust vote in July last year on the nuclear deal issue.
Singh had yesterday termed as "historical blunder" its decision to support the government at the Centre and said it was disenchanted with the Congress.
"It is ironical that in this country giving bribe and purchasing majority is not a crime but unearthing the truth is viewed as a crime," Javdekar added.
