After apparently failing to make onion, dengue fever and power privatisation election issues, the BJP on Friday announced that it would make the fake Stamp paper scam that has rocked Maharashtra and some other states as an issue in the forthcoming assembly elections.

BJP MP and Convenor of the BJP Election Committee for Delhi Vijay Kumar Malhotra told reporters that his party would make the fake stamp paper racket an issue in states where Congress is in power.

"The people need to have answers as to why the Congress governments in both the states were averse to a CBI probe especially when the mastermind of this scam was linked to ISI," Malhotra said.

Deputy Prime Minister LK Advani had said on Thursday that there was a possibility of this scam having links with Pakistani secret agency.
