Bihar: Lalu Prasad Yadav claims BJP has planted corruption charges against him

Rashtriya Janata Dal party chief Lalau Prasad Yadav on Friday came down heavily on Bharatiya Janata Party and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and asserted that the both are holding grudges against him and his party for which they will soon repay. The raids were reportedly conducted on charges of illegal (benami) land deals worth Rs. 1,000 crores. Taking on his official Twitter to carry out blistering attack on BJP following IT raids, Mr. Prasad said, "Listen, BJP/RSS people, Laluwill drag you off your seats in Delhi, whatever be my situation. Get it straight.Don't u dare to threaten me". Raid... whose raid? Raid...

The Income Tax department conducted raids at 22 locations in Delhi linked to Lalu Prasad Yadav. "I want to ask the media as to how they have reported it without any verification and evidence".

"I am an astrologer and predict that the Narendra Modi government will not be able to complete its five-year term", he said.

Accepts Lalu's invite to attend mega rally against BJP. How can my family and I become super rich and others remain paupers. "It's all part of a political conspiracy".

Lalu said he and his wife Rabri Devi, former Chief Minister, his two sons Tejashwi Yadav, Bihar Deputy Chief Minister, and Tej Pratap, Health Minister, have been filing IT returns and have submitted affidavits to the Election Commission about their assets. "It's all in the public domain". Lalu accused the Prime Minister of having intentions of dividing the country, which he said he won't let happen till he lives. "I'm standing rock solid in their path".

Amidst speculation that all is not well between the allies JD (U) and RJD, Bihar chief minister and JD (U) chief Nitish Kumar seems to have chose to be sticking to coalition dharma for now as he made a decision to attend the RJD's mega rally - "BJP bhagao, desh bachao" on August 27.

Lalu said in chaste Hindi: "Ab hum kendra sarkar ko tabah karke hi chodenge, usko ukhad phenkenge (Now I will destroy the central government, I will uproot it)". In Kashmir, bodies of soldiers are being mutilated every day... "Modi talks about beef ban, but in the last three years India has been the largest exporter of beef".
