At the time, President Mukherjee was the Minister of Commerce and Steel & Mines in the Congress government.

In his admission before the commission, deponent Ravindra Shukla said that he accompanied Mukherjee without knowing that the latter was a minister to a market on the instructions of Gumnami Baba.

Quoting him, TOI reports: “It was around 1981-82 when I was instructed by Bhagwanji to accompany a Bengali gentleman to the local market. The Bengali gentleman was staying at Ayodhya’s Birla Dharamshala. I ferried the gentleman on my Yezdi motorcycle to Chowk area of Faizabad, where he purchased clothes and some dry fruits.”

Shukla added that he dropped off the “Bengali gentleman” at the Birla Dharmashala. He says that he was able to identify the man as Pranab Mukherjee at a later.
