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.

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.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday slammed the BJP over Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra’s expulsion from the Lok Sabha after a debate on the cash-for-query allegations. She said the move was unacceptable and betrayed India’s parliamentary democracy.

Talking to the media, Banerjee said she felt sad to see the attitude of the BJP. She questioned how the BJP can betray parliamentary democracy. She said the BJP did not even allow Mahua to explain her stand in the House. She added full injustice had been done to the expelled MP.

Banerjee said the Trinamool Congress stands in full support of Moitra. She said the BJP could not defeat the Trinamool in elections, so they have resorted to vendetta politics. She said Moitra will return to Parliament with a bigger mandate. Banerjee said the BJP thought it can do whatever it wants as they have a brute majority. She added that a day will come when the BJP will not be in power.

After her expulsion from the Lok Sabha, Moitra told reporters outside Parliament that said will fight it out over the next 30 years inside and outside Parliament, inside the gutter and on the streets. She accused the BJP of hating Muslims and women. She claimed Adani was buying all of India’s ports and airports. She said Adani shareholders are foreign investors and the Home Ministry was giving them clearance to buy India’s infrastructure.

Reacting to her expulsion, Moitra said there was no evidence of any cash, any gifts anywhere. She said she had been expelled for sharing her Lok Sabha portal login. She said there are no rules governing the sharing of logins. She said tomorrow the CBI will be sent to her house and she is going to be harassed for the next six months.

Many Opposition parties have supported Moitra over the way she was expelled without getting a chance to put forth her stand.

Singh added the TMC leaders are exaggerating my words.

The TMC said this video evidence shows Singh not just uttering the word thumka twice but also making gestures that leave no room for misinterpretation. The party said Singh’s denial is another textbook example of BJP strategy to engage in shameful conduct  and then brazenly defend it.
