CBI to investigate Lalu Yadav on land for jobs case
On Tuesday, a team from the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) arrived at Rashtriya Janata Dal MP Misa Bharti’s residence in New Delhi to question her father and party chief Lalu Prasad Yadav in a land-for-jobs case. The examination of the RJD supremo comes a day after his wife and former Bihar chief minister Rabri Devi was quizzed at her Patna residence in the same case for nearly five hours.
According to officials, a team of five CBI officials arrived in two cars at 10.40 am at the residence of Misha Bharti in Pandara Park on Tuesday where Lalu Prasad is currently residing and the questioning will continue during the day.
Lalu Prasad’s son and Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav termed the CBI action a result of his family’s “relentless opposition” to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
“It is an open secret that probe agencies are acting against political opponents of the BJP and helping those who agree to align with that party,” the RJD leader told reporters outside the Bihar Assembly on Monday.
