RJD workers attack BJP office in Patna

P Chidambaram got

Hours after the Income Tax raids on his alleged benami (proxy) properties, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad tweeted that he would not be cowed by such frightening actions and also "congratulated BJP for its new alliance partners".

While raids are being conducted at a dozen locations, ten other official premises are being surveyed by the I-T department, they said.

Earlier, Modi had demanded a probe by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) into the connections between Lalu Prasad and his family with jailed businessmen brothers Surendra Jain and Virendra Jain. "Nitish Kumar is surviving because of the support of Lalu Prasad", he added.

■ Ravi Shankar Prasad: "The politics of Lalu Prasad has become politics of loot".

He said BJP leader Sushil Modi has been levelling "unsubstantiated" allegations against Lalu Prasad and his family for which the youth wing workers of the party were protesting. We will knock the door of law.Nitish Kumar should answer this.

A month ago Prasads elder son Tej Pratap Yadav had taken out a procession riding a horse driven chariot here and was followed by more than 200 motorcycles in the prohibited area and the police stood helpless.

Shashi Rajan, a BJP leader and former district president from Sheikhpura, said: "We were at the party office at around 12noon when around a hundred RJD workers, who were semi-nude (what he meant was shirtless) and carrying RJD flags attacked the BJP office in a planned way".

Witnesses said while taking out the march, the RJD workers suddenly stopped outside the office of the BJP located on the Beerchand Patel road and began shouting slogans in favour of Lalu Prasad.

Lalu Prasad, his MP-daughter Misa Bharti and his two sons, both Bihar government ministers, are accused of being involved in corrupt land deals worth over Rs1,000 crore.

Excited over the I-T raids, Modi said, "The Central agency acted moments after Nitish's statement".

"Today the CBI has raided senior Congress leader P. Chidambaram's places in Chennai".

The raids, which came on the third anniversary of BJP-led National Democratic Alliance's thumping victory in Lok Sabha elections, led Chidambaram to allege that he was being targeted for his criticism of the Narendra Modi government.

A senior office said that people and entrepreneurs are associated with the land transaction connecting Lalu Prasad is being examined.
