Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): A third video regarding the alleged involvement of Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar’s son Devendra Pratap in hefty cash deals and money laundering has come to fore on Tuesday evening--barely 40 hours before state goes to polls.
A businessman from Canada Jagmandeep Singh, who was seen interacting with the minister’s son in earlier leaked phone clips, has posted his video on social media. In the video, he has exposed Devendra Pratap’s alleged involvement in cash and land deals stretching upto ₹10,000 crores. He said that the transactions were made via a resident of a Gurudwara committee to evade the radar of economic intelligence bodies, while showing the pictures of bank transactions and chats on his mobile phone as proof.
Jagmandeep has also claimed involvement of Devendra Pratap’s wife Harshini Tomar in the money laundering. “A land worth ₹100 crores has been purchased in the name of Harshini ji, via benami companies” as he showed the screenshots of his chat with her.
The opposition Congress shared the video on X, accusing BJP of corruption.
It wrote, "A new revelation has come to light in the viral video case of Narendra Singh Tomar's son Devendra Tomar making transactions worth crores. The person who was talking to the minister's son on video call has confirmed the entire conversation by releasing a new video. This whole matter is said to be not worth ₹100 or ₹500 crore but ₹10000 crore. Narendra Singh Tomar's son has also purchased 100 acres of land abroad for hemp cultivation. Both the previously viral videos are correct. This video has exposed the biggest corruption of a BJPUnion minister. Shivraj ji, Now why don't you answer…say something!
"BJP means corruption,” the caption concluded.
Notably, two clips surfaced on social media last week, where Devendra Pratap Tomar can be seen talking to Jagmandeep Singh on a video call. The duo were seen discussing transferring cash worth ₹100 crores.
When the media sought answers from Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, he refused to comment.
