JHARK­HAND ROUTE TO RA­JYA SABHA

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

The CBI probe into businessman R.K. Agrawal’s as­so­ci­ate, who was caught with Rs 2.15 crore on March 30, led to the coun­ter­mand­ing of Ra­jya Sabha polls in Jhark­hand. That has, for now, closed the much-in-de­mand K.D. Singh route to po­lit­i­cal re­spectabil­ity. Un­like in the past, in­de­pen­dents have stayed away from the on­go­ing Ra­jya Sabha poll process. CBI is also prob­ing the Ra­jya Sabha poll held in Jhark­hand in 2010, which has led Congress Mla chand-rashekhar Dubey to al­lege that a Ra­jya Sabha MP from his party of­fered Rs 25 lakh as bribe to leg­is­la­tors then. Ahem. But how does he know?
