Supporting UPA from outside,Lalu on Tuesday returned Leader of Opposition Sushma Swaraj’s praise for BJP,alleging the Reddy brothers in Karnataka had bribed the BJP top brass,“Everybody knows Reddy brothers paid ‘mota (huge)’ money to BJP leaders. I demand a Parliamentary Committee to probe the issue.”
