BJP leader Maneka Gandhi today said jailed MP Amar Singh should reveal names of more persons involved in the cash-for-vote scam.
"Now he (Amar Singh) is in jail...He can expose more people (involved in the scam)," she told reporters here.
Those who had benefited from the entire episode were still at large but innocent BJP leaders had been put in jail, Gandhi said.
On Anna Hazare's demand of right to reject candidates in elections, she said she favoured the idea.
She and Arun Shourie had met Atal Bihari Vajpayee on the issue when he was the Prime Minister, the BJP MP said.
On the right to recall candidates, Gandhi said she did not favour it as rejected leaders could use money power to prove their following leading to corruption.
Gandhi, an MP from Aonla in Uttar Pradesh, was here to meet flood-hit people of her constituency.
