Lalu Prasad Yadav's homes raided: Ram Vilas Paswan questions Nitish Kumar's silence, says NDA govt has nothing to do with case

New Delhi: Union Minister and Lok Janshakti Party chief Ram Vilas Paswan on Friday said the Central government has nothing to do with the CBI raids on the premises of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav.

"Lalu Prasad was already in jail over his involvement in the fodder scam. There was no NDA government at that time. The court had ordered it. Today's raids were in relation with the corruption charges against him. The charges are documented. Political parties or the NDA government has nothing to do with it," he told reporters.

Paswan said Lalu Prasad should blame his party's ally (JD-U) in the Bihar government and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who had demanded action against benami (illegal) properties.

"If benami property cases are being investigated, where is the politics? If there is politics, then it is Nitish Kumar behind it," Paswan said.

Paswan asked why Kumar was silent on the issue.

He said he had prophesied that the Janata Dal (United)-Rashtriya Janata Dal-Congress government in Bihar would fall in two-and-half years.

"The government is handicapped. Earlier, I had said that this government will not last over two-and-half-years," he said.
