The talks doing the rounds in political corridors is that of the total number of votes that Pranab da got during presidential elections, no less than 10 per cent were courtesy the CBI, that is Mayavati, Mulayam, Jagan and so on. The other 10 per cent were got thanks to the Planning Commission. If sources are to be believed, there were several chief ministers from the north east, such as Sikkim’s Pavan Chamling and Nagaland’s Neiphiu Rio, who were bullied with CBI threats. Just before the elections, the Planning Commission called states such as Bihar and UP to Delhi and they were commissioned funds, in lieu of which the government asked for something in return.
