As the largest democracy in the world goes to vote in less than a month, REPUBLIC BHARAT in an explosive sting called the OPERATION BIKAU SANSAD has exposed those who represent Indians in the Parliament and still are willing to sell the country's aspirations for a sum of money.

The channel conducted three stings on three different Members of Parliaments, people who are supposed to put forth 900 million Indians aspirations to the fore and engage for in it in the first pillar of democracy - the Parliament. 

Harinarayan Rajbhar, a BJP neta who was voted to power from Ghosi in Uttar Pradesh, was one of the MPs on whom the sting was done. 

After an initial dither the MP went on to divulge explosive details to the channel's reporter. Wary of a crackdown, he sought favours in-kind from the Republic Bharat reporter instead of asking for cash directly.

Uttar Pradesh Deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya has reacted to the sting and said that he did not know about the sting and that he only wanted to corruption free India.

"I don't know about this. I can't respond because I haven't seen the video. We only want corruption free India," he said.

During the sting, the BJP neta Rajbhar made a few startling revelations. Here are the few things the MP revealed: 

  • He said, "I contested the 2014 General Elections. There were a few who spent around Rs 5 crores but couldn't win. I spent only Rs 85 lakhs and I won the seat."
  • He told the undercover reporter, "However there are situations when we need money to buy votes. Money is distributed. So we will see what the situation demands." 
  • He also told the Republic Bharat reporter, "We need is the promotion of campaigns, travel, petrol expenses. These are the things where we could use the help. Are you understanding what I'm saying?"
  • He asserted to the reporter, "Look when we win elections with your support, your work will be prioritised."
