Bihar MP seeks CBI probe into all previous decisions taken by Lalu as railway minister


PATNA: Jan Aadhikar Party (JAP) chief and parliamentarian Pappu Yadav has sought for a CBI probe into all the decisions taken by RJD chief Lalu Prasad in his capacity as the railway minister.

Prasad served as the 34th railway minister from May 23, 2004 to May 25, 2009 during the UPA-I government which Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had headed, as per an official report.

“During his (Lalu Prasad’s) tenure as the railway minister, apparently a large-scale corruption in railway took place in matter of awarding railway contracts, auction of railways properties and allotment of schemes,” Yadav alleged in his memorandum, seeking a CBI inquiry into these misdeeds.

He alleged the RJD chief earned ‘benami’ properties worth billions during his tenure as railway minister in lieu of granting benefits to contractors and others related to railway projects.

Yadav was elected on RJD ticket from Madhepura seat during the last 2014 LS polls but was expelled from the party after he rebelled against the party leadership.
