BJP leader and former Bihar Deputy CM Sushil Kumar Modi demanded Nitish Kumar to expel Tejaswi Yadav from the cabinet in light of the registration of corruption cases against Lalu Prasad Yadav and his family. The CBI, earlier in the day, carried searches at premises and residences linked to Lalu and Tejaswi Yadav in connection with alleged irregularities in tenders allotted to a private company Sujata Hotels for development, maintenance and operation of BNR hotels at Ranchi and Puri. The BNR hotels are Railways’ heritage hotels which IRCTC took over from the public transporter earlier in the same year. The case dates back to the time when Lalu was the Railway Minister of the country.

“Nitish Kumar should break his silence and sack Tejashwi Yadav as deputy CM,” Modi was quoted saying.

The CBI raids began at 7:30 am in Delhi, Ranchi, Patna, Bhubhneshwar and Gurgaon and the agency further conducted a raid at senior RJD leader Prem Chand Gupta’s residence. Gupta is one of the persons alleged to be involved in the hotel tender case.

Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu refuted allegations of political vendetta and said that the government had no role to play in it. “The law is taking its own course, the government or party (BJP) has no role in it,” he said.

        If you go by precedents, then it's too early to ask the Yadav brothers to go. In GUjarat, even after a MInister in Mr Modi's cabinet was convicted, he did not resign. So there are many healthy precedents set by the BJP, for others to follow.

              Who is he to demand removal of elected leader? Firstly, he should demand Modi and his goons to resign. Look what is happening all over India. People are getting lynched, raped. SM is not God send for Bihar, he is the most corrupt leader in Bihar beside Laloo.

                Sushil Modi is very cheap and lower class leader. His main intention to finish Lalu, to capture that votes toward BJP side. So that BJP and Nitish Kumar can enjoy in Bihar for a while. Sushil has no agenda, works or ambitions for Bihar or Bihari. His main focus is to finish Lalu and his family. Personal attack is a lower class mentality and lower degree and quality of politics. CBI should not become a hand tools of any govt. It is already proven that many CBI chiefs also corrupted. Till date I have not hear a single voice of CBI personnel that, govt told to wrong things and they refused likewise Army or BSF.

                  Sushil Modi is cheap! He brought out in public what was already known to the masses as to how a village bumpkin amassed a fortune for himself and his family using his clout as CM of Bihar with little regard for the toiling masses and least regard for law and order. If the CBI stays on course Lalu and his kith ahould undergo atleast twenty years in jail and have their illgotten wealth confiscated.Shame on IIM Ahd for giving this joker an opportunity as Railway mantri to lecture the students on so called turnaround of the ministry.
