Patna: Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi, at the sidelines of his Janata Durbar in Patna on Tuesday, denied any irregularity in the conciliation of the contingency bills as pointed by the CAG saying the state government was yet to reconcile the fund to the tune of Rs. 7,388 crore raising suspicion of corruption among the NDA opponents.
"There is no scam or corruption here. The fact of the matter is that the government is yet to reconcile fund amounting to Rs. 7,388 crore through submission of Detailed Contingency (DC) bills. The administration is working to reconcile that and once it's done, all doubts of corruption would disappear," the Deputy CM said.
Modi further said that DC bills of Rs 16,854 crore that was withdrawn from the treasuries had already been handed over to the office of the principal comptroller while bills for Rs. 11,274 crore had been adjusted through submission of Detailed Contingency (D/C) bills.
Taking a dig at Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) president Lalu Prasad Yadav who earlier accused the Chief Minister of not doing enough to attract investment, Modi said that Yadav's family had just opened a swanky showroom of motorcycles in Aurangabad indicating even he was now failing safe in a business-friendly Bihar.
"Earlier, Yadav and his family members were afraid to open their wallets in the state. Today they have the best motorcycle showroom in Bihar. That in itself speaks a lot about the changed environment in Bihar," the Deputy CM said.
