The rift among opposition, broken alliance, charges of corruption against him and his family were the specters haunting Mr. Lalu Prasad till now. But it seems that the storm is not yet over for Mr. Prasad as Bihar Deputy Chief Minister, Sushil Modi, on Tuesday said he would soon come out with documentary proof of sand mafia funding the RJD and investing in Lalu Prasad’s family assets.
While talking to reporters at Patna Sushil Modi said, “Sand mafia fund political parties … sand mafia is the main source of RJD’s funding … I would soon hold a press conference to make a big expose on links of Lalu Prasad’s family with the big guns involved in sand mining”.
The senior BJP leader asserted that the state government was committed to taking action against all types of people involved in corruption.
In reply to a query as of whether he had gone through the file of ‘soil purchase’, Sushil Modi tried to play down the issue by saying that it was a very small issue. He said, “We will see as what action has been initiated in the case. What is the progress in the case and what further action is required to be done in it? This is a very small issue.
RJD’s Bihar unit spokesman and media in-charge Pragati Mehta dismissed the allegations as “baseless and absurd”.
