Patna: Reacting to the ongoing protest by the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leaders in Bihar Assembly, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi said the opposition was wrong to assume that in the cover of noise they could hide the guilt of their leader Lalu Prasad Yadav and other members of his family.

"They can shout all they want; it won't erase the guilt of this very corrupt family that engaged in 'land-for-hotels' deal for personal gains. If they are so convinced that Lalu Prasad Yadav has been wrongly convicted by the CBI court then no one is stopping them from moving the court. Just shouting slogans everyday and disrupting the proceedings of the Assembly is not going to wipe off the sins of the RJD chief," Modi said.

The Deputy Chief Minister also took shots at Yadav's heir-apparent and son Tejaswi Yadav saying instead of always creating chaos in the Assembly in his lame attempt to defend his father, he should come out clean on how, while still being in his 20s and without any job or business or experience, he managed to acquire properties worth several thousand crores along with a Rs. 750 crore mall being built in Patna.

Modi, who was instrumental in exposing the Yadav family for illegally amassing properties in Patna and elsewhere valued at over 10,000 crore, asked Tejaswi Yadav to explain why did Kochar Brothers transferred valuable properties to a company owned Prem Chand Gupta, an RJD leader and former Union Minister, shortly after Yadav, the then Railway Minister, gave Kochar Brothers contract to run two railways-owned hotels in Ranchi and Puri.

"This property was then transferred quietly to the Lalu family. Does Tejaswi Yadav have an answer for that? If he could answer these questions honestly, he would still be the Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar," the BJP leader said.
