Lalu reaping what he sowed: BJP leaders on CBI team at residence of ex-Bihar CM


BJP leaders in Bihar claimed on Monday that the Central Bureau of Investigation was “doing its job as an independent body” in cases against RJD President Lalu Prasad who was “reaping what he sowed”.

Leaders of the Saffron Party, which is in opposition in the state but in power in the centre, were approached with questions about a CBI team reaching the home of Rabri Devi, Prasad’s wife and herself a former CM.

A CBI team visited the former’s home Bihar Prime Minister Rabri Devi in ​​connection with “further investigation” in the country into job scam case, officials said.
There will be no search or raid, they said.

The CBI team reached 10, Circular Road, a stone’s throw from the official residence of the chief minister and the Raj Bhavan in connection with a case related to the period when Prasad was the railway minister, in the UPA-1 government .

“Lalu Prasad has been dealing with the CBI for a long time. The feed scam cases, in which he has been convicted, were filed long before the BJP came into the picture, said senior BJP leader and former state minister Nitin Nabin.

He pointed out that “the fodder scam cases were recorded when the center was ruled by the United Front, of which he was a part. The complainants included Shivanand Tiwary, now the National Vice President of his party, and Rajiv Ranjan Singh alias Lalan, who leads the JD(U), his current ally”.

Jibesh Kumar Mishra, another BJP leader and ex-minister, said: “Lalu Prasad was first convicted in a cattle feed scam case in 2013 when the Congress-led UPA, of which his party was a part, ruled the Centre” .

“The CBI is an independent agency and it is doing its job. Allegations of political vendetta are baseless. Lalu Prasad and his family are reaping what he has sown (jaisi karni vaisi bharni), the BJP leader added.

The CBI had already filed its charges in the country for job scams and the special court summoned the accused, including Prasad and his relatives and others, on March 15, the officials said.

The agency has kept open further investigation into the alleged scam, they said.

The CBI team’s visit is related to further investigation into the case, she added.
