Patna: A day after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) filed a supplementary chargesheet against Bihar Deputy Chief Minister and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, naming him as an accused for the first time, in connection with the alleged land-for-jobs scam, Rashtriya Janata Dal leader and Rajya Sabha MP Manoj Jha has called the action a "political vendetta".
In a major setback for the RJD, the CBI on Monday filed the chargesheet against RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, his parents and former chief ministers Lalu Yadav and Rabri Devi along with others in the land-for-jobs scam.
"Such actions are taken because the BJP lost its government in Bihar. It is a political vendetta. Such actions by the central agencies ... BJP is trying to do something which it cannot achieve," Manoj Jha said.
"This is no more CBI. It is being directed by the two top leaders of BJP who run the Union government," the Rajya Sabha MP further alleged.
"The timing (to file chargesheet) has been decided keeping in mind the unity of opposition parties. These investigative agencies were never misused like this earlier," Tyagi said.
According to the CBI, irregular appointments of candidates were made in Central Railway, violating the laid down norms and procedures of Indian Railways for recruitment.
On March 15, the Court granted regular bail to ex-Railway Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav, ex-Bihar CM Rabri Devi, their daughter-RJD MP Misa Bharti and other accused in the land for jobs scam case. (ANI)
