New Delhi: Zee Media aired the first Television Interview of Pawan Bansal today, the former Minister of Railways, since his implication in the Cash-for-Promotion saga. He said there was a conspiracy being hatched against him since he held a very prominent position and was trying to eradicate a lot of ills that were plaguing the system.

In an exclusive interview with Rahul Sinha of Zee Media, he said, "I'm not involved in any wrong doing and I am not an accomplice in the Cash-for-Promotion case. These are vested interests of people who are trying to malign me and my family's image through false accusations and I'm sure that the courts will finally be able to bring the truth out."

He shared the various dates and the file movements on the issue to show that he was not involved in any way in the highly publicized issue. Bansal said that had there been even an iota of possibility of his involvement, he would not have been there to help the prosecution. He also pointed out that the file movement and the various conversations, said to be made on his behalf, do not gel.

He went on to say that he was clean and that there was a conspiracy to implicate him in the matter. He also shared that he was shocked upon learning that his nephew was embroiled in the act. According to him, CBI has done a thorough investigation and the Courts will bring out the truth in the case. He also said that some of the companies that he is being made an owner of (105 in total) include PSUs and some companies based down south that he doesn't even has clue of, let aside question of ownership.

He further clarified that he does not think there was an internal conspiracy within the Congress party against him and he believed the party's leadership will also understand that he has done no wrong. He was just hurt by the way the whole issue panned out and the media reports that accused him of the wrongdoing and pronounced a sentence against him.

Sudhir Chaudhary, Editor, Zee Media said on the occasion, "We have always striven to bring out the truth in all cases of public importance and have given everyone the right to defend themselves. With this interview as well we are trying to give opportunity to the accused to provide his side of the story; it is up to the viewers to make a decision for themselves on the issue."
