Differentiating between the cases relating to the Bahujan Samaj Party leader, Mayawati, and the Chhattisgarh Chief Minister, Ajit Jogi, he said while the first was handed over to the CBI by the Supreme Court, the latter had himself given the papers for inquiry and, hence, the CBI's role in implicating Mr. Jogi was a clear sign of its political involvement.
It was no different than the fodder scam, where the then United Front Government pursued implicated the Rashtriya Janata Dal chief, Laloo Prasad Yadav.
The BJP merely carried on with it unable to defeat Mr. Yadav in the political arena.
"To justify their case against Mr. Yadav, they implicated me also," even though the documents clearly showed that "it was not me who was the Chief Minister" in 1988.
The CBI, however, obtained the sanction of the then Governor, A.R. Kidwai, for "prosecuting me".
To arrest this trend, the Prime Minister, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, and the Deputy Prime Minister, L.K. Advani, should hand over the matter of alleged misuse of the CBI to a parliamentary committee.
