Soon after the Central Bureau of Investigation team reached his mother and former Bihar CM Rabri Devi’s residence, Bihar Deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav attacked the Union government stating that he had anticipated this, when the ‘Mahagathbandhan’ government was being formed in Bihar.
“The day trust vote was ongoing, and our Mahagathbandhan government was formed, I said then only that these things will keep on happening,” Yadav said.
Earlier on Monday, a CBI team reached the residence of former Bihar Chief Minister and senior RJD leader Rabri Devi in Patna in connection with the land-for-job case.
If a leader with corruption charges joins BJP, the cases against him are withdrawn, the RJD leader alleged.
“If you stay with BJP, you will be Raja Harishchandra. In Maharashtra when Sharad Pawar’s nephew (Ajit Pawar) went to BJP, all cases were withdrawn. When TMC’s Mukul Roy when to BJP, all cases were withdrawn. Whenever you show the mirror to BJP, this will happen,” Tejashwi Yadav said.
Condemning the visit of the CBI team at Rabri Devi’s residence, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal said, “This is wrong, raids like these are humiliating.”
Former Congress leader and senior advocate Kapil Sibal also reacted to the incident and pointed out the ‘fragile health’ of veteran socialist and RJD founder Lalu Prasad, husband of Rabri Devi.
“CBI heat on Lalu. We all know the fragile state of his health. To pressurise Tejasvi. The more the government does this more the people will turn against this government,” Sibal tweeted.
