The Central Bureau of Investigation on Monday have reached the residence of former Bihar Chief Minister Rabri Devi in Patna to question her about the land-for-job case. As per the reports, the probe agency has dismissed their actions to be a raid.

As per the reports, the CBI visited the former Bihar CM’s house to record her statement. The officials have also told the media that the probe agency had taken an appointment with the Devi prior to their visit.

The RJD workers have also assembled near the Rabri Devi’s residence and have begun sloganeering demanding for the CBI to go back, said reports.

CBI court in Delhi last month had directed former several including Union railway minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Yadav, and his wife Rabri Devi, as well as his daughter Misa Bharti to present themselves before the court in the land-for-jobs scam case.

As per the reports, the FIR had accused that Lalu Yadav and his kins had bought lands for cheaper rates in return of giving jobs during his term as Union Railway minister. The CBI had also filled a chargesheet in October 2022 and accused Lalu Yadav and family including 13 others in the land-for-job scam. As per the reports, the scam was dated back to be between 2004 and 2009 when Lalu Yadav served as railway minister.

According to the CBI claims, Lalu Prasad Yadav and his family including 13 others used to give out jobs in return of land. The CBI, in their claims, also cited that the few candidates who were appointed into the railways used to give their lands to Bihar’s Former Chief Minster and his family.

The CBI highlighted the alleged discrepancies in the job appointment in Railways and had also claimed that substitutes were also appointed without their being a requirement for the post. It was also claimed by the probe agency that the date of joining of the substitutes and the date of approval had a large gap in the middle. The RJD leaders, however, have dismissed the claims by the probe agency and termed the investigation by the CBI to be politically motivated.

The questioning by the CBI at Rabri Devi’s Patna residence comes a day after eight Opposition parties wrote to the Prime Minister of India and slammed the Centre for using central agencies for political purpose. Among the signatories in the letter was also Lalu Yadav’s son and Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav.

Priyanka Gandhi asks for how long will BJP keep blaming Congress

Priyanka Gandhi today addressed public rally in Ramnagar, Uttarakhand, where she asked BJP that for how long they will keep blaming Congress

Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Saturday responded to the Bharatiya Janata Party’s frequently made accusation that nothing happened in the country during the decades the grand-old party ruled, claiming the party is being responsible despite having been out of office for the last ten years

How long will you continue blaming Congress? Priyanka said, the Congress has not been in power for the last ten years, during a public rally in Ramnagar, Uttarakhand.

She said, the BJP has had a complete majority in government for the last 10 years, but they now claim that they want 400 paar, or an even larger majority. They claim that in 75 years, nothing has changed. Priyanka said, in Uttarakhand, the home of IITs, IIMs, and AIIMS, how have these capabilities grown if nothing has changed? Was it feasible that Chandrayaan landed on the moon if Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru hadn’t constructed these? she continued.

Priyanka criticised the Modi government for abandoning youth who put in a lot of effort to enlist in the Army, using the contentious Agniveer project as an example.

The Congress leader said, in his speech, Prime Minister Modi mentioned soldiers, but who introduced the Agniveer scheme? A sense of patriotism drives thousands of young people to dedicate years of their lives to enlisting in the army. They believe that by continuing in their work, they will support both their parents and the nation. But by introducing a plan like Agniveer, Modi ji broke the dreams of the youth, she claimed.

She further claimed that PM Modi and the BJP had abandoned Devbhoomi (Uttarakhand) after the  terrible disaster.

Priyanka took aim at the Prime Minister, by saying that he believes everyone is corrupt while he is not. They have forgotten about jobs and inflation because they are too preoccupied with using the ED, CBI, and IT to win over leaders to their party and overthrow the government. The question of accepting donations and conducting business came to light once the electoral bond was disclosed, she added.

Earlier this month, the Congress party presented its Nyay Patra, or Lok Sabha election manifesto. Among other things, it calls for a minimum support price (MSP) for farmers crops.

He said the opposition and INDI alliance do not care about the sentiments of the majority of the people of the India. He added Congress party enjoys playing with the sentiments of the people.

Talking about RJD leader Lalu Prasad Yadav, PM Modi said a person who has been sentenced by the court and who is on bail – Rahul Gandhi visited the house of such a criminal and enjoys cooking mutton in the month of Sawan and a video was also made to tease the people of the country.  The Prime Minister claimed the intention of INDI alliance is to tease the people of the country and he even compared them with the Mughals.
