With mere weeks to go ahead of the all-important Lok Sabha elections, when India will once again re-affirm its role as a beacon of democracy with an estimated 900 million voters expected to exercise their democratic franchise, an explosive sting by Republic Bharat has captured in a microcosm just how the citizens of India are betrayed time and time again by the very people in whom they repose their faith and vote into office.

In a series of on-camera investigations, the Republic Bharat special investigation team has stung three sitting Members of Parliament (MPs), revealing a shameful and condemnable sidelining of the aspirations of Indian citizens and attempts by the elected representatives to further their own ends.

Republic Bharat stung RLSP (Rashtriya Lok Samta Party) MP from Bihar's Sitamarhi constituency Ram Kumar Sharma on tape, exposing how he put his constituency for sale for some money - betraying not only the voters of the Constitution but also the exercise of the largest democracy in the world.

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Hamare yaha koi bhi chunaav main... jaise Andhra ke chuunav main 50 crore tak kharcha hota hai. Bihar-UP 50 crore ka maamla nhi hai. Yaha bhi 10 crore chahiye. 10 crore se kam main yaha chunav nhi hota. 10-13-15 crore itna ab yaha chahiye. Ab usi hisaab se jitna saksham hai, aapko kitne log madad karne wale hai. (In any election, like up to 50 crore are spent during an election in Andhra. But, in Bihar- Uttar Pradesh it is not the case of 50 crore. But 10 crore are needed. At less, than 10 crores there is no election here as well. 10-12-15 crore are needed here. From that aspect only how much capable you are, how many people are there to help you.)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Hamare yaha aur koi aasuvidha nhi thi. Gaadi ki aasuvidha hai. Vo Gaadhi humko provide kardeta hai. Driver ka number de dia tha hume, ki jab zarurat pade ise bula lijiyega. (We don't have any inconvenience. We had inconvenience of car. But, he provides us the car. Driver's number has been provided to me, whenever there is the need just call him.)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Phir wo hamse ek kaam karwaya. Bola MCI main aap is kaam ko karwa dijiye. Uska college us saal rok dia tha, admission... ek saal. Jaanch main gaya to report kheelaf aa gaya tha, aap phir se jaach karwa dijiye. (Then he asked me to do one work. Told me to get this work done in MCI. His college had stopped for 1 year, admission....one year. When investigated, the reports were against it, you get the investigation done again.)

Reporter: Yes.. Yes!

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Hamare ek bohot khaas afsar hai, humne unko kaha, to unhone kaha kaam ho jayega. Phone nhi karenge lekin aapka kaam ho jayega. Uska koi bhai tha Desai. (There was a very special officer of ours, we told him, Then he said it will be done. Won't call you, but your work will be done. There was a brother of him Desai..)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Wo humko phone kiye, usko bol diye hai wo kal se parso main institute kar dega ek dusri committee. Maine us party ki bol diya, bhai ho gaya hai. To usne kaha tha sir ye aapoke ek crore rupee dega. (He called us, told him he will reinstitute another commitee by tomorrow or day after tomorrow. I told that party, brother it's done. Then he had said that sir he will give you 1 crore rupees).

---------------------------------------------------------------

Reporter: Jaise jaise sarkari policies hogi hum chahenge aap hamari help karenge. (However the government policies will be, you will help us?

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Yes yes, okay okay.

Reporter: Sir hum logo ki koshish hai 10-15. (We are trying for 10-15)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - I understood you have 5-10 big corporate families, for which time to time we need to manage. Where were you since all these days? Where didn't you ask for help from us?

--------------------------------------------------------------------

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Mano 25-50 bade officer all India main hum logo ke khaas hai. (just say, that we have 20-25 big officers from all over India are close to us)

Reporter: To sir kaam karwa dete hai wo aapke ishare par. (so sir, do they get the work done on your command?)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Ha ek dam, ek dam kaam kara dete hai. Kara diye rehte aapka. Lekin hum logi ko ye nhi chahiye, koi aadmi aayega ki 25 hazar rupee le lijiye..aapka kaam ho gaya aur aap uchit samajhte hai to kariye...aur nhi bhi uchit samajhte hai, ki nhi kiye to uske liye hum phone nhi karte hai. ha chunaav aayega tab ham aapko phone karenge. (Yes, definitely, definitely they get it done. would have done for you too. But, we people don't want that, someone comes, take these rs 25, 000. Your work is done and if you feel it right then do it...or even if you don't feel it right, that it is not done then we don't call for that. Yes when the elections come, we will call you.)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Vaisa hum logo ke sambandh main abhi bhi aadmi kam aay, maatr ek aadmi aaya...wo last main aaye to maine unka ek kaam kara diya, wo Japani ka koi agency tha. Usko kaam lena tha to maine kara dia petroleum department sai. Wo hum par khud 25 lakh rupee chuunav main kharch kar chuka hai. (Anyway in relation to us even now very few men have come, only one person had come *****, he is an mp, he came in last and we got his work done. there was one (inaudible), that was an agency from Japan, he wanted work done so I got it done for him from the petroleum department. they had already themselves spent 25 lakh rupees on us in elections.)

Reporter: To in paanch saalo main to aapko kamane ka khoob mauka mila hoga.(so in last five years you would have got many opportunities to earn)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Ek bhi kaam nhi kiye hai, ek bhi kamane ka kaam hum nhi kr paye hai. Hum kahe na do hi kaam aaye. Ek Sarvesh Sahi, ek Japani agency.. unko dilwaye, uske badle... ek.. unka kuch kaam karwaye. Wo mitra hai to kuch help karenge chuunav main. (Not even one work, couldn't do a single work to earn. as we said, we only got two works. first Japan's agency, did for it....one (names politician) got some work done for him. He is a friend he will help in the elections)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma -  Medical college banana hai, AIIMS ban raha hai. 600 crore, 700 crore, 800 crore tak ka tender hota hai, usmain... sab hai, bada bada kaam karta hai. ​​​​​NH ka bada bada.. road hai jaha par kaam karta hai. Petroleum ki badi badi agency ka kaam hai. Coal mines ka kaam hai. Yahi sab karte hai hum.(Medical college is to be made, AIIMS is going to come up. tenders are worth rs 600 crore 700 crore 800 crore, in that (names a company) is everything, does all the big works. it works for national highway works. works for big agencies in petroleum. works on coal mines. this is all what we do.)

Reporter: Lekin sir wo to koi e-tendering hota hai na, uske bina koi jugaad nhi ho. (but sir isn't that through e-tendering, is there any other way?)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma -  Aree ab manage ho jata hai. Sab manage ho jata h.(everything gets managed, everything can be managed.)

Reporter: National highway bhi abhi faail raha hai, uska kaam mil jayega to bohot badiya. (national highways are increasing these days, if we get that work then it will be really nice)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma -  Ha (Yes.)

Reporter: Uska kaam dilwa dijiye bina e-tendering ke. Ya e-tendering manage ho jaye (get that work for us without e-tendering. or if e-tendering could be managed)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma -  E-tendering to hoga (E-tendering will happen. It will be managed.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Reporter: Sir dekhiye, paisa ki koi baat nhi hai, jitna aap bolenge utna karwa denge. Lekin phir ye bhi hai ki level ka kaam bhi aapko karwana padega. Utna profit hum chahenge...teen guna-chaar guna profit jyada ho. (Sir, see there is no issue on money, what amount you say we will get it, but then even you will have do work of as much worth as money. We will also want that much profit....three times-four times more profit.)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - To sun lijiye ek kahani main sunata hu. Japan ki ek company thi jo Congress party ki sarkar main 300 crore rupee ka kaam li thi. Samay par ek agreement nhi kiya to usko kaam nhi mila. Dharmendra Pradhan (beep) hamko akele economically help kiye hai. Humko 10-20 lakh rupee koi de diya tha. Ek baar wahi (politician) 25 lakh rupee de diye the. Iske baad 25 hazaar waale the sab, 50 hazaar se zyada koi nhi diya humko. To unka kaam aa gaya. (Then listen, I will tell you a story. There was a Japenese firm which got work worth Rs. 300 crore during Congress regime. There was no timely agreement so they did not get the work. Dharmendra Pradhan helped us alone economically...Someone gave us 10-20 lakh rupees. Once that (politician) only gave us 25 lakh rupees. After that everyone gave Rs.25000 only, no one gave me more than Rs. 50000. So their work came)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Kaam ka 300 crore repuree ka humko naya DPR (detail project report) ke aadhar par 620 crore rupee mila. 300 crore rupee ka hi tha jo jod diye the ghaata lagne ki wajah se. Waise bhi samay hum chhode uska kimat 450 crore rupee hona chahiye tha. Uska 620 crore ka cement ban gaya, 620 crore rupees ka kaam tha. (On the works of rs. 300 crore as per new DPR (detail project report) we got 620 crore. It was of 300 crore only which we left due to the losses incurred. anyway, the time I left it's value should have been 450 crore. Its estimate was created rs. 620 crore, it was work of rs. 620 crore.)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Hum ek rupee bhi nhi liye. Humko pehle help kiya tha. Wo humko kahe ki itna bada kaam hua ho aapko kya diye. To hum kahe ki humko bada help kiye hue hai. Wo bole maharaj kahi ke aap kehte hai ki25 lakh rupee humko diye hai aur kitna ka tha, mantri tak ismain paisa nhi liya. Isliye ki kh diya gaya tha ki MP sahab bole hai karna hai.3 percent is kaam main automatically hum logo ka hota hai, jo chhod diaya gaya. 3 percent matlab hua 18...lagbhag 20 crore ka kaam tha ye. Isko aap aise hi... humko keh dete ho hum usko keh dete. (I didn't even take a single penny, they helped us already.  He told us that it is such a big work how much did you get. Then I said they had helped me too much. He said that such a king you are, you had said that you got Rs. 25 lakh, and what was the cost of the work. Even the ministers didn't take anything out of it. Because it was said that MP sir has said that we have to help. Three percent of this work automatically is ours, which we left. 3 percent so that will be around 18....the work was worth around 20 crore. If you would have told us, we would have told him.)

Reporter: Theek hai sir. Dekhte hai ek do bada project ho to. (okay sir, then let's see if there are one or two big projects like this.)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Jaise aap medical main kaam karte hai to to usmain hum karenge, usmain koi dikkat nhi h. Waha help karenge.. aur bhi aapko jaanch sambhav hai. (just like you work in medical, we will do something in that, there is no issue in that, will help you there....and wherever else it is possible.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Reporter: Chunaav se pehle kitna chahiye, ye bata dijiye. (How much do you need before elections, tell us)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - chuunav main kitna, total 10 crore rupee ka hamara estimate hai. Jitna usmain karwa sakte hai karwa dijiye. (For election we have an estimate of around 10 crore rupees, from that how much you can arrange, do it)

Reporter: Kaise Karwaye aapko? Cash? ( how to give you...cash?)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Bank se aap kara mhi sakte. Bank se dijiyega kisiko. (you can't give through bank. whom will you pay through bank)

Reporter: Nhi de nhi sakte hai. (no, can't be given)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Mere main ek crore daliyega to hum phans hi jayenge, jail hi chale jayenge. ( if you put one crore in my house, we might get into trouble, will end up in jail.)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Hundi(hawala) se bhej sakte hai. (You can send through hoondi (havala)

Reporter: Kis se bhej sakte h? (through what?)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Hundi se nhi hota hai? (hoondi is there)

Reporter: Acchcha Hawala ke through nhi hota hai (Okay through havala you will get it)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Aap log kitne MP ko hire kar rahe hai. (How many MPs do you want to hire?)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Hum DP Sinh ke pass gaye.. bol diye ki ye paisa se humko madad kiye the. Ek mahina hua tha maatra hame MP bane huye. (We went to DP Sinh, told him that they helped me with the money. It had been only a month since I became MP.)

------------------------------------------------------------------

Reporter: Ek baat aur puchta hu, yadi hame kuch sawal puchwana ho to. (One more thing I will ask, if we want to ask some questions)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Ha kyu nhi ek dam (yes, definitely)

Reporter: To us sawaal ka kya kimat hoga. (so what will be price of that question)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Dekhiye Parliament main sawal.. aap humko 5 crore rupees 10 crore rupees ka help karwa rahe hai. Aap pure chunaav ka budget sambhal rahe hai. Humko chunaavi budget pichli baar *** akele finance kar diya tha. Akele. (See, the question in parliament...You are helping us with 5 crore rupees 10 crore rupees. you are handling whole budget of election. last time *** financed our whole election alone. alone....)

Reporter: Akele? (Alone)

RLSP MP Ram Kumar Sharma - Ya phir kisi se karwadijiye. kya pata. Leki humko pura paisa aana chahiye Humko. (or he got it done from someone... who knows. but we got all the money)

Reporter: Theek hai (Okay)
