Kulkarni to join Advani's 'yatra'

Kulkarni was released from jail on Thursday. Advani who stoutly defended Kulkarni as a “whistle-blower” when he was jailed has reportedly invited Kulkarni to join him in the ‘yatra’ that would conclude this month in Delhi.

Kulkarni and two former BJP MPs Mahavir Singh Bhagora and Faggan Singh Kulaste were released from jail on Thursday . They were granted bail by the Delhi High Court.  The third BJP MP Argal got anticipatory bail in the case.

“Our stand has been vindicated,” Kulkarni said, adding  “The whole truth is not out as yet. The ultimate beneficiary is the government, that has to be exposed.”

Kulkarni has been accused by the Delhi Police of masterminding a conspiracy in July 2008 which saw three BJP MPs allegedly taking money ahead of a trust vote in Parliament. The MPs walked into Parliament  brandishing wads of notes.

Kulkarni has said that he wanted to expose the UPA government’s ploy  to buy votes to remain in power.
