MUMBAI: The BJP leader and former home minister, Gopinath Munde, on Tuesday presented to the Maharashtra Government on the floor of the Assembly a compact disc that he claimed had the recording of the controversial telephonic talk between Bollywood actors Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai.

Mr. Munde said that his inference was that the police recorded the conversation since one could hear utterances of others in Marathi.

He said that he was presenting it to the Government through the Speaker so that they need not say they did not have the tape.

The Government is scheduled to make a statement in the Assembly on Wednesday.

Deputy Chief Minister R.R. Patil, who holds the Home portfolio, returned the compliment to Mr. Munde by presenting him a CD containing Police Commissioner Anami Roy's TV interviews to press home the point that Mr. Roy had not said that no inquiry into the episode was needed.

Mr. Patil urged the members not to politicise police investigation.
