Bihar Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sushil Modi on Wednesday attacked Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav by calling him “Robert Vadra of Bihar” and stated that over 125 properties acquired by him and his family fall under benami transactions.  He further accused the Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar of turning a blind eye towards the alleged acts of corruption by Lalu Yadav, who presently is Nitish’s ally in the state government.

Addressing a press conference in Delhi, Modi said that the RJD chief had even sent two of his aides to Union government ministers for seeking relief from investigations by agencies like the Enforcement directorate (ED). “However, they refused to intervene,” Modi added while refusing to reveal the names of the Central ministers who were approached or senior RJD leaders who met them.

Modi alleged that the RJD chief acquired properties worth over several crores through fraudulent means and gifted them to leaders who demanded tickets. He also criticised Nitish Kumar for not taking any action against Lalu’s sons.

“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,” Modi claimed. Sushil Modi even alleged that Lalu’s proposed rally in Patna in August was to bring together opposition leaders to save his benami properties.

Reacting 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.”

          What has been done to make a strong case in the COURT OF LAW to see to it that Vadra and Lalloo are in JAIL? One has to work hard to make a nation stronger. That hard work includes taking the LAW to the criminal's doorstep. Can the GOI do it???

              looks like you are an aaptard under IB investigation rejected by Delhi voteres in recent MCD elections! No ache din for corrupt antinationals, no point in blaming NaMo for taking away such 'ache din' they enjoyed under Soniaji. You should remember Modi promised ache din only for hard working honest Indians not anti-national corrupt g00ns! Adani/Ambani/Tata/Birla all were billionares for last 20 years or even more like many sucesful business al over teh world and constantly blaming them will take you nowhere. Work hard and become another sucessful rich person instead of stealong tax money like your masters Kejri,lallu,vadras do!
