A day after the CBI raided RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav and his family members, Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said there was no politics involved in the matter. The law will take its own course, he told reporters here on the sidelines of an event.

The raids were conducted across four cities in connection with a corruption case in which Lalu, his wife Rabri Devi, and son Tejashwi are among the accused. On Rahul Gandhi’s comments describing Prime Minister Narendra Modi as “weak” for not raising the issue of the H-1B visa in his talks with US President Donald Trump, Naqvi said the Congress vice-president should become “serious”.

“I feel Rahul Gandhi should stop such nonsense and nuisance and move towards seriousness. The more non-serious he is, the more he will hurt Congress,” the minister of state for minority affairs said.

    Why is the law not taking its own course in the case of the Aditya Birla and Sahare papers case? Why are the authorities falling back on a statement of the Supreme court to desist from taking action?

    This development and other developments across the country near about August-September with epicenter in Delhi covering financial or trading scams in which some politicians are alleged to be key players are corresponding to this Vedic astrology writer's predictions in article " 2017 - an opportune year for India with major worrisome concerns in February- March and August-September" issued widely to Indian news media last year in October -November 2016. While saying that financial or trading scams during the said period with Delhi as epicenter could be in big news , it was also said : " Some political leaders may be unwell or may break- away or probably face some consequence of wrong-doing allegedly done in past".

    The truth is that Lalu Prasad in Bihar is already a convicted criminal and as the Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi implied that "there was no politics involved in the matter. The law will take its own course, he told reporters here on the sidelines of an event". The BJP is serious in eliminating the corrupt dynasties who loot the country's wealth using various corruptions/scams and the corrupt dynasty of Lalu Prasad and Sons is not different. The Indian citizens would never forget the pictures of Sonia/Rahul Gandhi, Kejriwal, Sitaram Yechury shamelessly with Lalu Prasad sons criminal gang during the last elections in Bihar for their self interests and not in the interests of the country.
