INLD leaders release CD showing Haryana minister discussing ‘cash for CLU’

A Cabinet Minister of Haryana today landed in a soup as the main opposition Indian National Lok Dal today levelled serious allegations of corruption against him. INLD leaders today released a video CD showing the Minister discussing \"mode of payment\" of amounts between Rs 30 crore and Rs 50 crore with a \'reporter\' and an \'agent\' allegedly in lieu of getting a Change of Land Use for 30 acres.

The Minister, Rao Narender Singh, is a three time legislator from Narnaul Assembly constituency is the Health minister. Rao Narender Singh was among the defector MLAs who deserted Haryana Janhit Congress chief Kuldeep Bishnoi after the in 2009 Assembly elections and joined with the Congress.

In a press conference on Saturday INLD\'s Abhay Chautala released a CD and claimed that a senior Congress leader had given it to him. Without divulging the identity of the Congress leader, Abhay said, \"I do not know who made this CD, but a Congress leader has sent it to me. I cannot reveal his identity. The contents are very shocking and crystal clear. The previous CDs showing Congress legislators and ministers demanding illegal gratification from people also contained clear content. All this shows the extent of corruption prevailing in the Hooda government.\"

The CD displays a date - May 22, 2013 and is shot in a conference hall. Rao Narender Singh is caught on the spycam discussing the case with a person known to him and a reporter. Without disputing the contents and authenticity of the CD, Rao Narender Singh, when contacted, said that the matter is wrongly interpreted by the opposition. \"If somebody comes to you as a friend, what else are you supposed to say. If somebody shows you some papers, you will discuss it with him and then say that you will help him. That\'s all what I said. If somebody wrongly interprets it, it is very unfortunate.\"
