Patna: Bihar Deputy Chief Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sushil Kumar Modi on Tuesday presented yet another damaging report concerning the Lalu family saying an 11th person has surfaced now who has 'donated' valuable real estate to Misa Bharti, an MP and the eldest child of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief and his wife Rabri Devi.

At a press conference in Patna, Modi, who has made public a number of official documents in the past exposing how the Lalu clan amassed large number of lands and buildings beyond their combined sources of income, offered new documents indicating a woman, who was only identified as Chandrakanta Devi, donated 318 decimal land in Maner area valued at Rs. 8.6 lakh to Misa Bharti on false pretext and forged papers.

"Misa Bharti has admitted that she is the owner of the land in question and claims she got this land from her mother-in-law Chandrakanta Devi, the wife of Rajeshwar Singh, as a gift. However, her father-in-law's name is Rambabu Pathik and not Rajeshwar Singh. The transaction took place on December 8, 2006. In the transfer deed, Lalu Prasad Yadav's other daughter Rohini Acharya posed as her sister Misa Bharti while Misa herself is listed as the witness to the act of gifting," the Deputy Chief Minister said.

Modi once again asked the Yadav family to explain exactly what kind of service Misa Bharti provided to Chandrakanta Devi that pleased by her dedication, she gifted the land to her instead of her own children.

This is the 11th person that Modi has shown light on who have donated land and buildings to the Lalu family. Many of them happen to be their peons, servants, and care-takers who, out of their love and respect for the purchased properties in prime areas only to gift the land to their boss or to his family members.
