Day Of Reckoning, Says Arun Jaitley As 2 Opposition Leaders Are Raided

Spelling more trouble for Lalu Prasad, Income Tax department today conducted raids and surveys at about 22 locations in Delhi and adjoining areas in connection with alleged benami deals of Rs 1,000 crore by the RJD supremo members of his family.

The RJD on Tuesday called the income tax raids at party chief Lalu Prasad's residences in Delhi "an attempt to destroy" the former Bihar chief minister as well as the party, while the BJP questioned chief minister Nitish Kumar's silence in the matter. Is it an Alliance to protect the corrupt, to give a cover to the rank corruption of its constituents? "The reality is that Nitish Kumar is wearing the crown of a chief minister but it is Lalu Prasad who is ruling and you can very well see the result of Lalu rule", said Paswan.

I-T officials began carrying out raids at the premises of prominent businessmen and real-estate agents in the national capital, Gurugram, Rewari and a few other places in the early hours of Tuesday, officials told the Press Trust of India (PTI), adding that raids were also being carried out at the premises of RJD MP PC Gupta's son.

Tweeting in reaction to the raids, Lalu Yadav said, "RSS-BJP are scared of Lalu's name". Lalu's younger son Tejashwi Yadav is the deputy chief minister of Bihar. It is said that team consisting 100 tax department officials and police officers who are leading the searches. "I will keep fighting against Fascist forces until my last breath". "I am not scared of the BJP letting loose the government machinery on me", he wrote on the microblogging website.

BJP leader Sushil Modi told ANI, "We need good people working for good governance, not the people who are embroiled in controversies related to corruption".

A week from now Duchess Kate's sister will be walking down the aisle and her gown will undoubtedly turn heads all over the world. Rumour has it that Pippa, the youngster sister of Kate , the Duchess of Cambridge, wants guests to have two outfits .

Political analysts said that Lalu, facing a barrage of corruption charges, has tried to send across a message to the BJP as well as the JD (U) that any fresh unity among the two parties would not affect him and he will single-handedly take on the BJP.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday said if there was documentary proof or solid evidence against the Rashtriya Janata Dal chief and his family then the central government should take legal action. Times Now reported how Yadav's daughter made a lot of profit after buying land at such throwaway prices.

"The politics of Lalu Prasad has become politics of loot". On May 12, Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad had demanded an inquiry into the land deals related to Yadav's daughter Misa Bharti.

Bihar's biggest shopping mall spread over 7.5 lakh square feet is coming up in Patna as part of such dubious transactions, he had alleged at a news conference.
