Lalu Prasad met Jaitley, sought favour in fodder case: Sushil Modi

Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi on Wednesday claimed that former Bihar Chief Minister and RJD president Lalu Prasad had sought Centre’s ‘help’ in fodder scam probe and in return offered to topple Nitish Kumar government. According to Modi, “When Jharkhand High Court gave the verdict in favour of Lalu Yadav that there is no need for a trial in other cases related to fodder scam, CBI went to SC challenging this decision.” He added, “When the CBI went to the Supreme Court, Lalu (Prasad) sent his messenger Prem Gupta to Arun Jaitley, asking to not let CBI appeal to the top court in the case. He said that if they get help '24 ghante mein Nitish Kumar ka ilaaj kar dunga'.”
