Weeks ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, 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 laid bare the essence of Indian democracy- as elected politicians walk with a price-tag across parties, betraying the citizens who vote them into office. 

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

One of the parliamentarian who was stung on camera was BJP MP from Ghosi in Uttar Pradesh, Harinarayan Rajbhar. He was caught making some sensational revelations.

Following this massive investigation, Republic Media confronted deputy CM Of Uttar Pradesh Dinesh Sharma and asked him about his take on the sting operation concerning a member of his party.

The BJP leader shied away from taking a stand, saying he hadn't seen the video. Though, he said such things aren't acceptable, and due action will be taken if any individual is found to be indulging in such acts.
