- The BJP leader is purportedly heard singing an elaborate I-told-you-so
- The song translates to "as shall you sow, so shall you reap"
- On Sunday, another BJP leader questioned her "style of functioning"
One of the persons in the phone call is allegedly lawmaker Gyan Dev Ahuja, heard singing what appears to be an elaborate I-told-you-so: "Jaisa kiya hai tune waisa hi tu bharega (As shall you sow, so shall you reap)".
Mr Ahuja is a legislator from Alwar, where the BJP lost the recent parliamentary by-election to the Congress. The person he speaks to chuckles heartily in the audio clip leaked days after the damning letter by another leader, Ashok Choudhary, asking for Ms Raje's sacking.
The party lost two parliamentary constituencies and one assembly seat in Rajasthan to the Congress in by-elections held last month. For the ruling party, the defeat flashes a neon sign ahead of state polls later this year.
The BJP didn't win even a single assembly segment in the two parliamentary seats.
Mr Ahuja did not confirm it was his voice in the clip but he didn't deny it either. "Wait and watch, wait and watch, I will not confirm or deny the audio, you will see lots of masala ahead," he said, asked to confirm the authenticity of the call recording.
Ashok Parnami, known to be a staunch Ms Raje supporter, said, "I have come to know from newspaper and media reports that the Alwar MLA has said something. Most certainly we will take action against him."
