Team Anna member Prashant Bhushan on Monday dragged the Prime Minister's Office into the controversial CD issue involving his father Shanti Bhushan alleging that it was behind withholding a forensic report which said it was doctored.

His remarks came following a RTI reply that the forensic examination by Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL), Chandigarh shows that the CD was "doctored", contradicting findings of two other such tests.


Bhushan claimed that the PMO in response to RTI of Subhash Aggarwal gave him only Delhi CFSL report and not the Chandigarh report.

"The interest taken by the home minister P Chidambaram in this matter and the PMO in revealing the Delhi CSFL report while withholding the Chandigarh CFSL report shows that the government is behind the dissemination of this fabrication, if not the actual fabrication itself.

"This was the beginning of the repeated attempts by the government to defame important members of the anti-corruption campaign - an attempt which continues till this day," Bhushan said.

After the CD came into circulation, Shanti Bhushan had filed a complaint with Delhi Police on April 14, alleging that it was fabricated and denied having any conversation with Mulayam and Singh.

"This (Chandigarh) report, after 8 months since it came into existence, has been given to Subash Chandra Aggarwal by the Chandigarh CSFL on Central Information Commission’s order. The Delhi Police refused to give this report to Shanti Bhushan despite his repeatedly asking for the same.

"Despite facts they distributed the dishonest Delhi CFSL report which certified the CD to be genuine to the entire media. Even the PMO in response to RTI of Subhash Aggarwal gave him only Delhi CFSL report and not the Chandigarh report," Bhushan claimed.

He further alleged that Delhi Police did not send the Amar Singh-Mulayam Singh CD to the CFSL lab which would have conclusively shown that all of Mulayam Singh's speech in this fabricated CD had been cut and pasted onto the CD from the Amar Singh tapes, which has been filed in the Supreme Court on 2006.

"Shanti Bhushan had given a copy of the Amar Singh CD to the Delhi Police and we had conclusively demonstrated in a press conference on April 17, 2011 that Mulayam Singh's speech had been merely cut and pasted on this fabricated CD from the Amar Singh tape," he said.PTI

The documents filed by Swamy include a communication of Jan 30, 2008, by the department of economic affairs of the finance ministry recording the gist of a meeting between Chidambaram and Raja reported news agencies.

'Desi Boyz' gets "Adults Only" certificate

Mumbai: The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) last week viewed two of the most awaited films of the year, Rohit Dhawan's debut film 'Desi Boyz' and Milan Luthria's 'The Dirty Picture'. They were passed with an 'Adults Only' certificate, and the latter has suffered one minor cut.

Rohit, whose dad David Dhawan has apparently never got an A-rating in his entire career as a filmmaker, is dismayed at his maiden film being tagged as adult fare.

"I'm extremely disappointed and saddened by the censors' verdict. I've made a positive feel-good film. I think it'll go down as the cleanest 'A' certified film ever," he said. Starring Akshay Kumar and John Abraham, the film is about two jobless guys who become male strippers to earn money. It is releasing Friday.{from IBN LIVE}

Is Swami Agnivesh trying again to sabotage Anna's movement???

News agencies brought the news which read :Agnivesh willing to rejoin Anna's movement

Social activist Swami Agnivesh, who fell out with Anna Hazare, says he is willing to rejoin the anti-corruption movement led by him provided they agree, though he had faced "lot of insults" during his stint as a core member of Team Anna.

"I will not let my ego come in the way. I am willing
to rejoin Team Anna. But I will not tolerate any hanky-panky," he told India TV in an interview, according to a release from the television channel.

Detailing his differences with Team Anna during Hazare's fast at Ramlila Maidan in New Delhi, Agnivesh said it can be called dissent "which is essential in democracy."

"I wanted Anna Hazare to sit on indefinite fast, but not on fast unto death. At the core committee meeting on August 13, I raised this point and my dissenting note was formally recorded at Anna's insistence," he said.

Agnivesh, who had levelled serious corruption charges against key Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal, said some people wanted Anna movement to continue so that "they could grab the leadership."

"How can they ignore a joint appeal of Parliament and even the Prime Minister saluting the Gandhian? It was a golden opportunity for Anna to end his fast, but they dragged it on for three more days. I told them, you've done the wrong thing and this will later cause grave risk to Anna's health," he said.

To a specific question, the release quoted him as saying that "I even wept sitting alone. I had faced a lot of insults. But I decided not to speak otherwise it could weaken Anna's movement."

On his conversation in a controversial CD, he said he was speaking to Pandit NK Sharma, an associate of Shankaracharya Swarupannanda Saraswati.
