RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav warned Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah that he would “destroy your arrogance and existence”.
Hours after the CBI booked him and his family members for corruption in awarding tender for maintenance of hotels during his tenure as Railway Minister, Lalu said,
“Listen Narendra Modi and Amit Shah, I will embrace the gallows but will destroy your arrogance and existence. You filed a case against my children and wife. The BJP wants to cause fissures in the Grand Alliance. You (BJP) want to piggyback (on Nitish Kumar) to forge an alliance. Our alliance is intact”
After returning from Ranchi , the former CM said ,
“I learnt that 27 CBI officials came to my Patna house to conduct a search. I learnt that it was about IRCTC hotel allotments. I wonder why the case was lodged after so many years…. This has become a practice now. The CBI is not as much to blame as Modi and Shah. Some officials said they had got orders from above….”
Reiterating that his sons and daughter were being targeted in a bid to send him to jail, he said: “They want me to surrender… but I will finish them off.”
The CBI not only secretly got the FIR registered but was also armed with search warrants, Lalu said.
