CBI and ED 'captive puppets' of BJP-led NDA government: Congress

Nitish Kumar

"No wrong was done in the tendering, this is a BJP conspiracy".

Reacting to Tejashwi's remarks, Republic TV channel Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami said, "If Lalu and his son calls Republic TV anti-national, I take it as a compliment".

"We have demanded that the RJD MLAs raise this issue in their Monday meeting and urge Lalu to appoint senior leader Abdul Bari Siddiqui, now the finance minister in the state, as the deputy chief minister in Tejashwi's place", senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi told DH.

He further said that Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad has said that if Sushil Modi does not apologise within two days, they will file a defamation suit against him.

Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Venkaiah Naidu on Friday said it has become a "fashion" nowadays to curse the BJP-led central government for anything and everything.

The searches, which started at 7 am and included Rabri Devi's Circular Road residence in Patna, were spread across 12 locations in Patna, Ranchi, Gurgaon and Bhubaneswar.

The investigation agency has registered a case against Yadav, his wife Rabri Devi, his son Tejashwi, former IRCTC MD, PK Goyal, Sarla Gupta who is the wife of Yadav's confidante Prem Chand Gupta, among others. Available on Android and IOS.

No request yet from Trump election fraud commission
There is no evidence that the integrity of the 2016 election in Maryland - or any other state- was compromised by voter fraud. He said the state routinely sells the information to political parties, candidates and researchers.

Political observers pointed out that the grand secular alliance was formed in 2015 when Lalu Yadav was already a convict in the fodder scam. Asking Mr Kumar to ask Deputy Chief Minister to resign from his post, Mr Manjhi said that Chief Minister should dismiss him from the state cabinet if he refused to do so. The case was registered on the allegations of awarding the tender for development, maintenance and operation of Hotels at Ranchi and Puri to a Private Company dealing with Hotels in the year 2006.

In the same year, the hotels were transferred to the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC).

Several RJD leaders, who gathered at Lalu Prasad's residence to express solidarity, accused the NDA government of "political vendetta" as Lalu Prasad had always targeted "communal agenda" of BJP.

Interestingly, a day after the CBI raided properties associated with Lalu Yadav, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Saturday raided three Delhi farmhouses belonging to his daughter Misa Bharti, in connection with a money laundering case probe.

"This is the chief minister's agnipariksha", added Modi.

"Listen Narendra Modi and Amit Shah, I will embrace the gallows but will destroy your arrogance and existence".
