Lalu had an inkling of CBI raid

As partymen roared ‘Yes’, Lalu added: “Ensure that the rally, even in my absence, is successful and breaks all previous records, including the most famous Garib rally.”

So on Friday, when the CBI sleuths raided Lalu-Rabri residence in Patna – 10, Circular Road, at 7 am, many of the RJD chief’s close aides were not amused.

Lalu himself was in Ranchi where he had to appear before the CBI court in connection with the ongoing fodder scam case.

“Lalu had already hinted his partymen on July 5, the RJD’s foundation day, that he could be arrested soon as he had been consistently raising his voice against Narendra Modi Government. But this bullying tactics (by centre) won’t deter us. The RJD will emerge stronger after such raids,” said former MP and a close aide of Lalu, Shivanand Tiwary.

Ironically, it was Tiwary, who as the leader of the Samata Party, the earlier avtaar of the JD (U), was one of the petitioners in the fodder scam in 1996.

Incidentally, when Tiwary was in the JD (U), he, along with the then Bihar JD (U) president Lallan Singh, had alleged in 2008 about the shady land transactions done in favour of then Railway Minister Lalu Prasad.

The CBI raid on Friday is related to the same land deal in which an industrialist Harsh Kochar was given two railway hotels – one in Ranchi and the other in Puri (Odisha) when Lalu was Railway Minister. In return, a land in Patna of around two acres was transferred in February 2005 to Delight Marketing Private Limited whose director was RJD MP Prem Chand Gupta, Lalu’s close associate and also a Union Minister in UPA-I. 

Lalu’s two sons Tej Pratap and Tejaswi Yadav and daughter Chanda Yadav were made directors of the company. Later, on November 12, 2016, the company Delight Marketing Private Ltd was renamed as Lara Projects Private Limited (La-Ra named after Lalu and Rabri).

No wonder, the CBI has named Lalu, his wife Rabri, their sons Tej Pratap and Tejaswi as accused in the FIR lodged in this case on July 5.
