The Congress on Wednesday demanded a probe into the alleged tape-recorded conversation between some BJP leaders and a businessman in which they were allegedly conspiring to topple the Nabam Tuki government in Arunachal Pradesh.
“There should be a thorough investigation on how Congress legislators were weaned away to support a new formulation,” senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal said.
“There is a tape-recorded conversation which we produced both in the high court and the Supreme Court which points the needle of suspicion at Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) as well as home minister (Rajnath Singh) and we would like both these authorities to explain their position in Parliament,” he said.
Sibal demanded an immediate investigation into the tape-recorded conversation, saying he expected the BJP-led government to act with the same alacrity it had done in ordering a probe into an alleged sting operation in Uttarakhand in the case of CM Harish Rawat. “Who is this businessman? Who were the BJP leaders? We want to know who were the people involved in this and whoever is guilty should be brought to book,” he said.
