ow,Rahul does a quiet Kushwaha 

TIMES NEWS NETWORK 

Lucknow: Rahul Gandhi never lets go of an opportunity to hammer BJP for inducting NRHM scam key suspect B S Kushwaha.But he has quietly done a Kushwaha himself giving a ticket to tainted ex-BSP minister Anees Ahmad Khan,aka Phool Babu,from Bilaspur in Pilibhit.Khan replaces earlier announced candidate Dev Swaroop Patel.
Khan was minister of state for minority welfare and haj till Mayawati sacked him on December 30,2011 for neglecting duties.The BSP chief denied him a ticket from Bilaspur.Khan,an old BSP hand,had won the seat thrice.
Last May,UP Lokayukta N K Mehrotra indicted Khan for misappropriating MLA funds and ordered recovery of Rs 94 lakh which the former minister gave a society his family runs.
In 1993,the then SP-BSP coalition headed by Mulayam Singh introduced the MLA fund.Guidelines were framed in 1999 during the BJP government.Initially,Rs 25 lakh was allocated every year to an MLA.This was increased to Rs 1.25 crore.Khan allegedly diverted around Rs 1.62 crore from his MLA fund in 2007-08 for construction of three educational institutions run by a society.Khans wife Malka Begum was the president of this society and brother Akheel Ahmed manager.The Lokayukta couldnt recommend strong action against Khan because of a resolution the assembly had adopted barring Lokayukta from recommending punishment against a legislator for alleged misuse of MLA funds.
The Lokayukta then left it to the CM to take a decision.Mayawati took no action then but sacked Khan last December.The sacked minister termed the charges against him an act of political vendetta.Importantly,the assembly resolution that stopped the Lokayukta from recommending action against Khan for criminal misconduct was Congress-proposed.This barred the Lokayukta from recommending punishment against a legislator for alleged misuse of MLA fund.The resolution was moved by Congress leader in the assembly Pramod Tewari and it was adopted by voice vote.
Mayawati sacked 18 ministers on charges of corruption and criminal activities as well as negligence of duty.She denied ticket to her MLAs found involved in criminal activities.Many tainted expelled BSP leaders were picked up the Opposition.While BJP gave tickets to Daddan Mishra,Badshah Singh and AK Verma,SP fielded Rajpal Tyagi,Guddu Pandit and Sher Bahadur Singh.
