With political parties bracing themselves for the trust vote, Communist Party of India general secretary A B Bardhan on Monday accused the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance of horse-trading and alleged that the going rate of a member of Parliament was Rs 25 crore.

"No one has principles anymore. It is not a question of a few crores but Rs 25 crore for horse-trading," Bardhan said while addressing a meeting in New Delhi to launch the Left parties' nationwide campaign against the government.

"I have never seen Rs 25 crore in my lifetime. I am sure that none of you (audience) have seen it either," the top CPI leader said.
