Patna: After being accused by Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) President Lalu Prasad Yadav of sheltering liquor mafia in Bihar, Janata Dal – U national Secretary General RCP Singh on Thursday declared the former Chief Minister 'insane' saying Yadav was suffering from acute mental illness that had no treatment.
"This man is a mental patient and is beyond any cure. Because of his sickness, he keeps making statements that are so absurd that anyone can prove him wrong," the JD-U leader said.
As reported, Yadav on Wednesday had said that under Nitish administration, alcohol was being home-delivered in Bihar by District Magistrates, Superintendents of Police (SPs) and other law enforcement officials under the tutelage of RCP Singh who also was managing the money received from the liquor mafia. He also had said that now the school children were used to deliver alcohol to homes and the money earned from it was going in Singh's coffer.
"This is the way a mad man talks. If Lalu Prasad Yadav has any evidence against me, I would ask him to make it public. I have been in the bureaucracy in the former Mulayam Singh government in Uttar Pradesh and in the Nitish administration. I served under Nitish Kumar as the Principal Secretary and never once anyone accused me of any type of corruption but Lalu Prasad Yadav just makes up allegations against those he is opposed to and hopes people will believe him. I challenge him to produce evidence against me but I know he won't because he doesn't have anything against me," he said.
The JD-U leader said that it was the RJD chief who was the leader of land mafia, sand mafia, and liquor mafia in Bihar and he was just trying to deflect the charges because of all the CBI investigations against him and his entire corrupt family.
Taking a shot at Yadav's two illiterate sons, Singh said that Lalu did not know what education and hard work meant to someone like him.
"I got education and have worked hard all my life. What does Lalu know about these things? He thinks politics means amassing properties illegally for him and his family. He has no idea what hard work is or what public service means. If he thinks I am protecting the liquor mafia in Bihar then I would invite him to my home for a few days and see what goes on in my household," the JD-U leader said.
Singh's acerbic comment obviously did not go well with Yadav's sons as Tej Pratap Yadav who shot back at the JD-U leader saying Singh should 'remain within his limit' as he did not have 'aukat' to talk like this about his father.
"Singh must not forget his status. He is a nobody and does not have the 'aukat' to make accusations against Lalu Prasad Yadav. He is the keeper of Nitish Kumar's 'treasure' and before accusing someone else of corruption, he should explain what is his position in the JD-U and on what basis he was allotted a government bungalow," the elder son of Lalu Prasad Yadav said.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
