Former deputy chief minister of Bihar and RJD leader, Tejashwi Yadav, has launched a stunning attack against BJP leader and current deputy chief minister of Bihar, Sushil Kumar Modi, accusing his family’s involvement in the Rs 1500 crore Srijan scam.
Taking to Facebook, Tejashwi posted what he claimed were the bank statements of Modi’s sister, Rekha Modi, and niece Urvashi Modi.
The RJD leader wrote, “ Bihar Dy CM Sushil Modi’s sister Rekha Modi & niece Urvashi Modi received Crores of ₹ frm #SrijanScam. Here are bank statements of Srijan to prove transactions.Sushil Modi & Nitish Kumar are direct parties in 2500 Cr Scam but CBI not naming & questioning them. Why?”
Tejashwi said that the Srijan scam had taken place ‘under the able guidance of Deputy CM cum Finance Minister Sushil Modi and sound and known patronage of CM Nitish Kumar.’
He asked, “Why CM & Dy CM didn’t act on complaints from RBI & then Finance Ministry of India.
I’m giving proofs that CM Nitish Kumar was in very much loop & known to things related to #SrijanScam but he turned a blind eye and didn’t take cognisance of the scam and allowed the rampant loot of state exchequer. His party leaders were directly involved in this plundering to fund him.”
Modi has not yet commented on the disclosure of bank statements allegedly belonging to his sister and niece.
Nitish Kumar last year had recommended a CBI probe into the Srijan scam. Bhagalpur-based Srijan has been accused of swindling more than Rs 1500 crore in collusion with top government officials including the state’s deputy chief minister Modi.
