ore skeletons tumble out of the Wikileaks cables much to the embarrassment of the Congress-led UPA government. Cash to be used for allegedly paying MPs during the Manmohan Singh government's trust vote of July 2008 was shown to a US Embassy staff by an aide of Congress leader Satish Sharma.
With the opposition coming down heavily trying to corner the government, Lok sabha and rajya Sabha witnessed noisy scenes and had to be adjourned to reconvene later.
This shocking allegation emerges from what is reportedly the US Embassy's cable, dated July 17, 2008.
This cable was sent to the US State Department by U.S. Charge d'Affaires Steven White.
Marked as number 162458 and stamped SECRET, this classified cable was accessed by The Hindu through the whistle-blower website WikiLeaks.
The cable written by the U.S. Charge d'Affaires Steven White is said to have written about a visit the Embassy's Political Counselor paid to Congress leader Satish Sharma.
It is Congressman Captain Satish Sharma, as he is called within his party circles, who allegedly told the U.S. diplomat that he and others in the party were working hard, to ensure the government won the confidence vote on July 22.
