Patna: Displaying his penchant for unfounded rumors and conspiracy theories, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Lalu Prasad Yadav said that the case against former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Lal Krishna Advani, along with other party leaders of yesteryears, in the Babri Masjid demolition incident was revived by the Supreme Court at the behest of none other than Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Explaining his theory, Yadav, speaking at a press conference in Patna on Wednesday, said that Modi did not want Advani to become the next President of India after reports surfaced in the media that the former Deputy Prime Minister was throwing his hat in the ring to seek the highest post in the nation.

"We all know that the CBI takes orders from the Prime Minister's office so it was at the tacit approval of Narendra Modi and the Sangh Parivar, the CBI approached the Supreme Court seeking permission to reopen the Babri Masjid demolition case against Advani, Murali Manohar Joshi, Uma Bharati and others," the former Chief Minister of Bihar said.

Calling the Prime Minister a man who loved to play 'dangerous politics', Yadav said that if he could throw a man of the stature of Advani who belongs to his own party under the bus, why would he care about those who were not his supporters or were not a member of the BJP.

He also cast aspersion on some sort of conspiracy by Modi and his men for the 'failing health' of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

"There should be a high-level probe into why Vajpayee has become physically weakened and debilitated?" Yadav said.

Incidentally, the former Prime Minister and the BJP patriarch, turned 92 last December.

The RJD chief, who is said to be getting increasingly concerned with the growing drumbeat of yet another financial scandal involving his entire family as leveled by his former colleague-turned-political arch-enemy Sushil Kumar Modi, tried to turn the table on the BJP slamming newly-elected Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath for talking about 'triple talaq' in the Muslim community.

"First of all, who in today's day and age marries three times when one can barely handle one wife, and secondly, even if someone follows the 'triple talaq' system, why does it bother other people. This is someone's personal matter and no one should be allowed to interfere in it. Moreover, it is intriguing why Yogi himself never got married," Yadav asked.
