Calling CBI raids at the premises of RJD supremo Lalu Prasad and his family a “political reprisal” by the Modi government, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today asserted the NDA dispensation would be voted out in the next Lok Sabha poll. “I think this is nothing but a political reprisal by the BJP-led central government,” Banerjee told reporters. Asserting that the BJP will not be in power at the Centre after 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Banerjee alleged the saffron party was using central agencies “to disturb the opposition parties”. “They have two jobs in hand. One is to use central agencies to disturb opposition parties, and secondly, to bring in outsiders and employ them to start riots,” she alleged. “In 2019, the BJP will take leave from power at the Centre,” she said. The CBI today carried out searches at the residence of former Railway Minister Lalu Prasad and 12 other locations in an alleged corruption case.

The case relates to award of contracts for the upkeep of two hotels owned by a subsidiary of the Indian Railways– IRCTC–in return for a 3-acre plot which was allegedly transferred to a company, whose owners were known to Lalu’s family, for a pittance. The land was eventually transferred to another company which was owned by the family members of Lalu.

    This development and other developments across the country near about August-September with epicenter in Delhi covering financial or trading scams in which some politicians are alleged to be key players are corresponding to this Vedic astrology writer's predictions in article " 2017 - an opportune year for India with major worrisome concerns in February- March and August-September" issued widely to Indian news media last year in October -November 2016. While saying that financial or trading scams during the said period with Delhi as epicenter could be in big news , it was also said : " Some political leaders may be unwell or may break- away or probably face some consequence of wrong-doing allegedly done in past".

      All Corrupts and Scamsters of the country unite to fight against Swach Bharath Abhiyan. ( I did not know that when Modi came out with Swach Bharth Abhiyan, he meant cleaning up the country of all scamsters as well !!)
