New Delhi:

Rashtriya Janta Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav vented his anger on the Union Government through his Twitter handle. Accusing the BJP Govt of using the Income Tax department as a tool to muffle his voice, Lalu Yadav said that no can bring him down, if his voice is muffled than crores more Lalus will stand up. 

"Congratulations to BJP for new alliance partners. Lalu Prasad is not the one to be scared or be down. I will fight fascist forces till my last breath," RJD chief tweeted on Tuesday. 

Income Tax department on Tuesday conducted raids and surveys at 22 locations in Delhi and Gurgaon on charges of benami land deals worth Rs 1,000 crore involving RJD chief Lalu Prasad.

Tweeting in reaction to the raids, Lalu Yadav said, "RSS-BJP are scared of Lalu's name. They are aware that Lalu has been crushing their lies, loots and jumlas, and thus they are creating pressure."

RJD chief also clarified that the corruption allegations against him will fail to dampen the great alliance in power in Bihar. "Don't be greedy, I have created an alliance of same mindsets. I am not afraid of BJP tactics," he tweeted. 

BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi had recently alleged that Lalu Yadav and his family members had amassed "benami property" worth Rs 115 crore in a posh area of New Delhi through a shell company.

RJD, however, dismissed the allegations and dared Modi to get all the charges probed by a central agency.

On Sunday, RJD president Lalu Prasad rubbished money laundering charges against his daughter and Rajya Sabha member Misa Bharti. “There is no merit in the allegations. Legal notice is being served,” Prasad told a press conference in Patna. The charges of money laundering by a shell company against Bharti were brought by a television channel and then by senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi.

That shell company “does not exist at all”, the RJD chief said adding that “They are indulging in character assassination.”
