Congress leader Ajit Jogi once spilt the BJP in Chhattisgarh in December 2001, when he walked away with 12 MLAs through money power. In December 2003, when the BJP won Chhattisgarh, winning 50 out of 90 seats, Ajit Jogi tried to split the BJP again and form the Government. He wrote a letter to the then Governor saying, “Our Congress Party’s all 37 MLAs give their support to a government to be formed under the leadership of Baliram Kashyap, MP. Please give us the chance to form the government”. This letter of Jogi was openly brought out in the media and Ajit Jogi admitted that he wrote the letter.
The same day as this letter went out, an audio tape having conversation between Ajit Jogi and a BJP leader of Chhattisgarh on phone was aired. In that tape, Jogi was talking of giving money to buy BJP MLAs to split the party. Jogi later said that the letter to the Governor was his, but the voice in the tape was not his. But this lie was exposed by the forensic lab report which said that the voice in the tape was indeed of Ajit Jogi. This single lie itself is enough to nail Ajit Jogi. This report shows that the lab said it was Jogi’s voice only. (http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2006-01-22/india/27803015_1_cash-for-mlas-p-r-khunte-ram-avtar-jaggi)
But just on 4th June the CBI said that it cannot prosecute Ajit Jogi and has filed a closure report. (http://articles.timesofindia. indiatimes.com/2012-06-05/india/32055198_1_cbi-files-closure-report-ajit-jogi-horse-trading)
For bribing the MLAs, 45 lakh rupees were paid in cash to a BJP leader, directly by Ajit Jogi and his son Amit Jogi. These 45 lakh were handed over to the CBI as well in December. Despite this clear evidence the CBI first said in January 2007 that it cannot prosecute Jogi and now again has said in June 2012 (of course on Congress Government’s orders) PLEASE DO NOT LET THIS CUNNING MAN ESCAPE.
Ajit Jogi is a very cunning and a very dangerous man. Note that former BJP chief Bangaru Laxman was convicted and given 4 years imprisonment on a fictitious case, where all the so-called dealers and deals were unreal. If he could be convicted for an imaginary thing, then Jogi can definitely be convicted for this real attempt to split the BJP giving 45 lakh in cash, which were given to CBI and this was second attempt to split the BJP after splitting once in 2001, also through money. All anti-corruption crusaders like Anna Hazare, Baba Ramdev etc should be asked to raise this issue to nail the CBI and the Congress for trying to let Jogi get away with this.
