Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, in his ongoing attempt to delay his appearance before the CBI in connection with a number of corruption cases, failed to keep up his appointment with the nation's topmost investigative agency on Monday saying he needed an additional two weeks to prepare his defense in the hotel-for-land scam.

Yadav was originally summoned to appear before the CBI in Delhi on September 11 but he managed to get two weeks grace citing his frequent appearance at a Jharkhand court in connection with the fodder scam in which he remains convicted.

The CBI, while allowing two-weeks respite to the RJD chief, had asked him to appear before it today. However, once again Yadav, who was already in Delhi on some political mission, weaseled out of it when he and his lawyers arrived at the CBI headquarters on Monday morning and filed yet another request to delay the appearance by two weeks.

Yadav's son and former Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav is scheduled to appear before the CBI on Tuesday morning but with his father's request for delay already been accepted, it is likely he will also ask for a stay in his interrogation in a number of corruption cases.
