It refers to veteran Congress leader and former Parliamentarian Renuka Choudhary making shocking statement about casting-couch present even in the Parliament. Bitter aspect can and must not be ruled out. Now since the statement has come from a seasoned politician having held high posts including that of Union Cabinet Minister, a probe becomes a must to expose the culprits. Any silence by authorities in the statement may send wrong message about hiding the culprits. Probe and exposure of those involved in casting-couch may prove to be deterrent for any more evil of this kind in future.
However, each and anything is possible. It may be recalled that a Parliamentarian Rajesh Manjhi was once caught having taken his girlfriend on an official trip in name of his wife. There are cases like where husband Parliamentarian hided name of his second wife at Lok Sabha website, while the second wife gave name of her husband on Rajya Sabha website.
However, it is regretting that a prominent political party is said to have given party-tickets to its members of Karnataka state-assembly for the forthcoming elections to state-assembly who were caught red-handed viewing porn-films on their mobile-phones in the state-assembly.
