Rs 10cr ransom for vote!

AGP president Prafulla Kumar Mahanta claimed on Wednesday that a Congress leader promised a huge Rs 10 crore to a non Congress MLA for vote in the Rajya Sabha polls on February 7.

Talking to reporters in Guwahati on Wednesday, Mahanta said alleged that the ruling party leader made the offer over telephone on Tuesday night.

He said that a section of ruling party leaders is desperately looking for opposition party legislators for vote in favour of the Congress and BPF candidates.

He, however, refused to divulge the name of the opposition party leader.
