Operation Chakravyuh organised by two journalists Jamshed Khan and Mayabhushan Nagvenkar, both former journalists,has caught several big politicans off guard while demanding commission for getting work done or showing undue favour to an NGO, which had floated fake projects for developmental works in their respective constitutencies.

Amongst those who had been shown were Shakshi Maharaj and Paras Nath Yadav, Samajwadi Party MP from Jaunpur in Uttar Pradesh.

Bring the rest of the money to get the letter," he is quoted a saying on the tape.
