After Rabri Devi, Lalu Yadav likely to be questioned by CBI tomorrow in land-for-jobs case
After the questioning of former Bihar Chief Rabri Devi, Rashtriya Janata Dal Chief Lalu Yadav is reported to be next in line for questioning by the Central Bureau of Investigation in the land-for-job-scam case. According to reports, RJD chief will appear before the CBI in Delhi for questioning.
As per the reports, the probe agency sent a notice to Lalu Yadav a few days ago and according to the officials, RJD chief is likely to be questioned in the case tomorrow.
Most recently, the probe agency visited Rabri Devi’s residence on Monday to question her about the land-for-job case on Monday morning. According to the reports, former Bihar Chief Minister was questioned for 5 hours by the CBI.
It was also reported that the RJD workers assembled outside the house and raised slogans against the probe agency demanding the CBI to go back.
The investigation by the CBI comes in the wake of the recent letter written by the Opposition to the PM Narendra Modi for misuse of central agency for political motive. Among the signatories in the letter written to PM Modi, was also Lalu Yadav’s son and Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar Tejashwi Surya.
