During the debate on the confidence motion on July 22, at about 4.00 pm, three BJP MPs from Madhya Pradesh produced cash of around Rs 1 crore offered to them allegedly by Samajwadi Party general secretary Amar Singh to vote for UPA.
The incident led to pandemonium in the House. Many BJP members rushed to the well of the House and disrupted the proceedings. Speaking to reporters, LK Advani said that three BJP members were approached with Rs 1 crore.
The live coverage of the Lok Sabha was momentarily stopped. The Lok Sabha was adjourned by the Speaker until 6.30 pm in the evening. The Prime Minister gives his reply then and the trust vote takes place at 7.15 pm.
