CD forgery will boomerang on perpetrators: Nitish

Shoumojit Banerjee

Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has come out in support of the former Law Minister and co-chairman of the Lokpal Bill drafting committee, Shanti Bhushan, and his advocate-son Prashant Bhushan, saying their integrity is “absolutely beyond doubt.”

On Monday, Mr. Kumar said the case of the surreptitious compact disc, which allegedly contains a conversation between Mr. Shanti Bhushan, the former Samajwadi Party general secretary, Amar Singh, and the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Mulayam Singh, would “boomerang on the fabricators.” The public would give a fitting reply to this attempt to stymie the anti-corruption process.

Mr. Kumar likened it to the 1989 St. Kitts forgery case in which opponents of the former Prime Minister, V.P. Singh, tried to implicate him.

Asked whether it was a case of conspiracy, Mr. Kumar said: “If so, then those people have dialled a wrong number.”
