RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav on Thursday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah, saying that they want to "ruin his family."
Lalu had appeared before CBI for questioning in connection with the land-for-hotels scam. The RJD supremo said it is a fraud case.
He said,” I will uproot communalism & fascism even if I'm hanged.”
Earlier in the day, Yadav, who arrived at the headquarters at 11 am, was accompanied by his daughter Misa and did not speak to the media. He was taken to the investigation officer while Misa was asked to wait in the lobby, CBI sources said.

His son Tejashwi Yadav, the former deputy chief minister of Bihar, is scheduled to appear before the agency on Friday.
It is alleged that Yadav, as railway minister in 2006, handed over maintenance of two Railway hotels -- BNR Ranchi and Puri -- to Sujata Hotel (a company owned by Vinay and Vijay Kochhar) after receiving a bribe in the form of three acres of prime land through a 'benami' (shell) company.
