One CD has already made nights restless for Amar Singh. To make matters worse, Raj Babbar has turned up with 24 CDs that contain controversial conversations of the Samajwadi Party leader.

Babbar, who was expelled from the SP in February, handed over the CDs to Governor TV Rajeshwar,and alleged that some of the conversations had "deep national security implications".

"I have urged the Governor to ask the Central Bureau of Investigation to look into these CDs. Some of the conversations between Amar Singh and other people raise serious issues relating to national and state security," he said.

"The CDs speak volumes on how Amar Singh emerged as an extra-constitutional authority in the state. It also shows how his personal interests were given precedence over the larger interests of the state.

"Some of the conversations also expose hidden facts behind the recent communal violence in Mau and Amar Singh's role in the whole episode," Babbar added.

"I have therefore urged the Governor to restrain Amar Singh from entering Uttar Pradesh."

"While Amar Singh put up a facade of joining an anti-George Bush demonstration in New Delhi, he was there to welcome his wife at another function later in the day," he said.
