Lalu Yadav's daughter Misa Bharti's Delhi home raided in corruption case

He dubbed the Central Bureau of Investigation raids as witch-hunt and a conspiracy by the Bharatiya Janata Party, and said the allegations against him are baseless. Me and my party will not be cowed down.

"We are with him (Yadav) in this hour of crisis facing him and his family members", said Bihar Congress chief and education minister Ashok Choudhary after paying the RJD chief a visit. "On August 27, we are holding rallies in Bihar to tell the people how myself and my family are being attacked due to political vendetta", Lalu Prasad told the press in Ranchi. "We are waiting for Kumar to take action", said senior BJP leader and former deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi.

The CBI FIR, a copy of which was procured by ANI, named eight entities, including Lalu, his wife Rabri Devi, son Tejashwi Prasad Yadav, and former managing director of IRCTC PK Goel as the accused.

The CBI searched 12 locations across Delhi, Gurgaon and Patna, in relation to a hotel maintenance contract awarded by the former Railway Minister during his tenure.

It is alleged that Lalu Yadav as the railway minister, handed over maintenance of two railway hotels to a company after having been bribed a prime land in Patna through a benami company owned by Sarla Gupta. Available on Android and IOS.

In speaking exclusively to India Today after the CBI raids conducted, Lalu Prasad Yadav said that he has done nothing wrong. But now, even a day after CBI raided the deputy chief minister after registering a case against him, he is silent on the issue.

Prasad, who was here on Friday to appear before a Special CBI Court in connection with a fodder scam case, claimed that he was being targeted by the BJP Government.

He also refuted charges of favouring Sujata Hotels through IRCTC while he was the railway minister and said the decision to hand over the hotels was taken before he took over as railway minister in 2004.

A day after the CBI raided the residence of Lalu Yadav and his family, the Enforcement Directorate has raided the residence of RJD Chief's daughter, Misa Bharti in alleged money laundering.

An angry Lalu vowed to "break the arrogance of the PM and Amit Shah" before he is hanged.

Names of State Finance Minister Abdul Bari Siddiqui, Lalit Yadav, MLA, and Mr. Prasad's elder son, Health Minister Tej Pratap Yadav, came up at the closed-door meeting with some top party leaders. Top State BJP leaders asked legislators on Sunday to gear up for a possible mid-term poll.
