Another CD on the cash-for- votes episode surfaced on Monday with three UPA parties claiming that the BJP had stage managed the entire show for political gains.

"All the claims of BJP leaders have been proved wrong," SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav said while releasing the CD at a joint press conference with RJD and LJP leaders Lalu Prasad and Ram Vilas Paswan in New Delhi.

"When some people visited the BJP MP's house to deliver money why was it not handed over to police. Fingerprinting tests could have led to some evidence," he said.

The entire incident was "cooked up" by the BJP to make it a poll issue in the next elections. The total number of CDs in circulation on cash-for- votes scandal has now gone up to three.

Paswan also said the entire episode was a drama enacted by the BJP.
