Must read

NEW DELHI: Bihar deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav appeared before the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in connection with the land-for-job scam on Saturday. Meanwhile, RJD MP and Tejashwi’s sister Misa Bharti has joined ED investigations.
“We have always cooperated with the agencies but the situation in the country is that it has become very difficult to fight but we have decided to fight against this and we will win,” Tejashwi said while leaving for the CBI office.

In its case, the CBI has alleged that during the investigation, it was found that the accused in conspiracy with the then general manager and CPO of the Central Railways engaged persons as substitutes in lieu of land either in their name or in the name of close relatives of the Lalu family. A case had been registered against ex-Union railway minister Lalu Prasad, former Bihar CM and his wife Rabri Devi, their two daughters and 15 others, including unknown public servants and private persons.
Earlier, Tejashwi had skipped three summons on March 4, 11 and 14. Last time, he did not join the probe citing wife’s health issues.
