Bhagalpur Scam: Lalu Prasad Yadav accuses Sushil Modi, Nitish Kumar involvement in scam worth Rs 600 crore
RJD president Lalu Prasad today alleged that Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar and his deputy Sushil Modi were the masterminds of a scam of nearly Rs 600 crore recently unearthed in Bhagalpur and promised to lodge a formal complaint with the CBI in Patna.
"Once Nitish and Sushil Modi realised that their joint venture scam would be exposed, they decided to withdraw from the mahagathbandhan in Bihar to join the NDA and form the government to seek protection against any inquiry," the RJD chief claimed.
Lalu also alleged that Sabour-based NGO Srijan Mahila Vikas Sahyog Samiti Ltd, in whose account illegal withdrawals from a government treasury were deposited, was patronised by both Nitish and Sushil Modi.
