New Delhi: Many politicians in Delhi-NCR are allegedly laundering cash, converting black money into white at a hefty commission, a TV channel sting revealed on Tuesday.
Local leaders of various political parties, including the Congress, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), Bahujan Samaj Party (the BSP), Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Janta Dal-United (JD-U), were caught on camera at their party offices negotiating terms of black money conversion in a sting conducted by India Today TV channel.
The sting showed BSP leader from Ghaziabad Virendra Jatav, sitting at his party office, asking for a commission of around 35 to 40 per cent.
“It will be done hand-to-hand. You can take it in cash in one hour,” Jatav is seen saying in the video clip.
