Bihar govt denies reports of being tipped off on Lalu raids

We have work to do for Bihar unlike 'unemployed' Sushil Modi: Tejasvi Yadav

Lalu also criticised the CBI's action of naming his wife Rabri Devi, a former chief minister, and son Tejashwi, the current deputy chief minister, as accused in the case.

After the news broke, BJP leader Giriraj Singh urged Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to speak up against the on-going investigation of corruption charges against RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav.

The FIR was registered on July 5 in connection with alleged favours extended to Sujata Hotels in awarding a contract for the upkeep of the hotels in Ranchi and Puri and receiving premium land as a "quid pro quo", says CBI.

The raids are being carried out 12 locations by the CBI, including the residences of Lalu Prasad Yadav, in Delhi, Patna, Ranchi, Puri and Gurgaon.

"After reaching Patna, I would like to know what they have found in my house...." "Law of the land must take its own course in an impartial and just manner".

Although the JD (U) and RJD have not further commented upon the cancellation of the public event in Patna, questions are being raised in the political circle whether Nitish is refraining to share dias with Tejashwi, named in the FIR filed by CBI against Lalu, kin and associates in the corruption case.

The RJD chief also blamed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah for targeting him and said he will fight BJP's attempts to destroy him and destabilize the Grand Alliance government in Bihar.

Names of State Finance Minister Abdul Bari Siddiqui, Lalit Yadav, MLA, and Mr. Prasad's elder son, Health Minister Tej Pratap Yadav, came up at the closed-door meeting with some top party leaders.

A defiant Yadav, who returned to Patna from Ranchi after the raid was conducted, called the whole exercise a conspiracy hatched against him by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

"The case is of criminal conspiracy (120-B), cheating (420) under IPC and corruption", Additional Director CBI Rakesh Asthana said here while addressing the media.

"The tender was specifically worded to favor Delight Marketing Private Limited, a company that had agreed to provide three acres of land to Lalu Prasad Yadav, the then Railway Minister, in Western Patna".

Party sources said he spoke to eminent lawyer and party's Rajya Sabha member Ram Jethmalani twice. "In 2006, some hotels were given to private parties through open tender to the highest bidder".

Lalu Pradad claimed he had improved the condition of the IRCTC, which he said was formed and made autonomous during the previous BJP-led NDA government.
