Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and former Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar, Sushil Modi has once again taken a stand against the opposition. In reference to the alleged benami land deals of Lalu Yadav, the senior leader on Wednesday attacked the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief, calling him ‘Robert Vadra’ of Bihar.

Sushil Modi in a press conference said that “Lalu Prasad and his family have acquired over 125 properties in 12 years. About 80 per cent of these were acquired between 2004-09 when Lalu Prasad was the Railway Minister and between 2000-2005 when his wife Rabri Devi was the Chief Minister. He also remarked, “It is his (Lalu's) nature to give ministerial berths in return for land.”

Sushil Modi also took a dig at Bihar’s Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, questioning him why the JD(U) President was still silent on the issue, not taking action against Lalu and his family, despite two of his sons holding key positions in the state cabinet.

Slamming Lalu's eldest son Tej Pratap Yadav, the BJP leader said: "The land bought for Rs 54 lakh in Aurangabad in Tej Pratap's name has not been declared in his election affidavit."

"Apart from 125 'benami' properties, there are seven shell companies through which they have made properties worth crores in Patna, Kolkata, Delhi, and Aurangabad," Sushil Modi claimed, adding that Lalu's family owned 18 flats in Bihar capital Patna itself.

He also said, “On one hand Nitish says there is zero tolerance against corruption, but at the same time he is not acting against corruption cases taken up by the Income Tax officials.”

On Tuesday as well, the senior BJP leader claimed that Bihar Health Minister and Lalu’s son Tej Pratap Yadav was gifted more than 13 acres of land in 1992 when he was just 3-years old.

This is nothing new for the Bihar politicians. Sushil Kumar keeps firing series of salvos at RJD and JD(U) leaders from time to time. He also claims that he has written numerous letters to the State Chief Minister urging actions against the RJD leader and his family.
