Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sushil Modi on Wednesday called Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav, “Robert Vadra of Bihar”. He stated that more than 125 properties acquired by Prasad and his family fall under benami transactions. He also accused the Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar of turning a blind eye towards the alleged acts of corruption by Lalu Yadav.
The RJD chief had even sent two of his aides to Union government ministers for seeking relief from probe by agencies such as the Enforcement directorate (ED). However, “they refused to intervene,” Sushil Modi said while addressing a press conference in Delhi.
“He (Nitish Kumar) talks about zero tolerance (for corruption), but he didn’t take any action. Earlier, he said the Centre should produce evidence and take action, and now when they started taking (action), he is saying it is vindictive action,” Sushil Modi claimed.
Responding to Modi’s allegation, Lalu said, “Be it Robert Vadra, Priyanka ji, Kejriwal, Mamata didi or Lalu Yadav and his family, an attempt is being made to break them.”
