RJD scoffs at Sushil Modi's allegations against Lalu, Tej Pratap
22 April 2017, 01:23 | Terri Saunders
"This is the game Lalu had been playing to amass properties", he said.
"Is it merely a coincidence that the RJD chief's daughters Chanda and Ragini were the directors of the fake company while Yadav's wife and former Chief Minister Rabri Yadav and son and Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav were the major shareholders of the company", he asked.
Sushil Modi had also questioned as to how Prasad's family acquired the ownership of the Delight Marketing Company Pvt Ltd, which owns prime lands, including two acres at Saguna Mor in Patna where the state's biggest mall is being built.
BJP legislature party leader Sushil Kumar Modi on Tuesday alleged that RJD chief Lalu Prasad's sons, Bihar Deputy CM Tejashwi Prasad Yadav and Health Minister Tej Pratap Yadav, owned "benami property" and did not disclose it in their affidavits for the 2015 Assembly elections.
"This plot and the two-storied building was "gifted" to the two sons of Lalu by their maternal uncle Prabhunath Yadav in 2006". This way, the land as well as the money generated through its inflated value remained with the family.
Modi also claimed that for the last few days, he had been releasing various documents showing how Prasad's family got the land and shares of A.K. Infosystems Pvt.
Seeking to know as to how a landless Prabhunath Yadav would gift the land to Tej Pratap and Tejashwi, Modi demanded a probe into the transactions involving the alleged "benami assets". The Katyals had already separated themselves from the firm in 2014. Ltd., that was set up in September 2006 by O.P. Katyal and Amit Katyal. "Why did the Katyal family give loan to the firm for buying land from Yadav brothers and later separated themselves from it? I will write to the agencies concerned, including the Enforcement Directorate, Income Tax Department, CBI and the state government to take the matter to its logical conclusion", Modi said.
Earlier on 18 April, the apex court heard the plea filed by the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief challenging his jail sentence in connection with the mid-1990s fodder scam case. However, it was Mrityunjay Tiwari, one of the RJD spokesperson, who stepped up with a response and said, "Sushil Modi has failed to prove his claim of Rs 90 lakh soil purchase and has been on an allegation-making spree".
