Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan today denied receiving any payments from an accused of Vyapam admission and recruitment scam, saying he never took any ticket from any individual and his travel was always paid by his party.

“I vehemently deny taking any favours or tickets from any individual. As a party activist, the party (BJP) usually booked my tickets,” he told PTI here.

Dismissing allegations levelled by Congress leaders Jairam Ramesh and Randeep Surjewala that they had documents to show accused Sudhir Sharma extending favours to BJP and RSS leaders, he said “I want to ask them (Congress leaders) who bears cost of their press conferences? Naturally, the Congress party. And so was it in my case. As party activist, all my tickets were done by my party office.”

Pradhan said he did know Sharma but had never asked him for tickets to travel to Bhopal in May 2010 for a party activity.

“I never got tickets from anybody,” he said. “All tickets for my Party work were booked by the Party office. I got no tickets from any individual,” Pradhan said.

    The country owes a lot to the efforts of Baba Ramdev and Anna Hazare who started the anti corruption movement in 2011 or else our puppet economist would have plunged the nation into an ever spiraling debt like in Greece. Remember India was bankrupt during 1990s. Now Cong is desperately searching for evidences that can link any BJP leader. Photos from marriage reception, eating in restaurant, travel are all examined closely. If they had put the same effort while it was in power then lots of scams would have unearthed
