Former managing director of the Labour and Construction Co-operative Federation B P Singh has reportedly told interrogators that he paid kickbacks to several former ministers in the Mayawati regime.
Singh, who was arrested Wednesday, was produced in a Lucknow court, which sent him to judicial custody.
The chief of the police's co-operative cell Suvrat Tripathi said Singh claimed to have bribed several former ministers — including Badshah Singh, Awadhpal Singh Yadav, Nand Gopal Gupta 'Nandi', Chandradev Ram Yadav, Anees Ahmed, Rangnath Mishra and Babu SIngh Kushwaha — to get construction projects for the agency.
