Former Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi has made a sensational charge against Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, accusing the leader of trying to poach National Democratic Alliance (NDA) MLAs in Bihar in a bid to topple the Nitish Kumar government.
Sushil Modi shared a mobile number and alleged that Lalu Prasad was making telephonic calls to NDA MLAs and trying to allure them by giving ministerial berths.
“Lalu Yadav making telephone call (8051216302) from Ranchi to NDA MLAs & promising ministerial berths. When I telephoned, Lalu directly picked up.I said don’t do these dirty tricks from jail, you will not succeed,” Modi tweeted on Tuesday.
The RJD supremo, who is serving his jail-term in a number of fodder scam cases, has been moved to the RIMS hospital in the Jharkhand capital on medical grounds.
Before being admitted to the hospital, he was lodged at the Hotwar Central Jail.
Sushil Modi, a close friend and ally of chief minister Nitish Kumar, was recently made the president of the Bihar Legislative Council (BLC).
