Senior Bihar BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi today trashed RJD’s allegations and asked it to come up with documentary evidence against him to substantiate the charges. The former Bihar Deputy Chief Minister said he has levelled charges against Lalu Prasad’s family with “documentary evidences” whereas RJD levelled allegations against him without any basis or evidence. “I am neither a director, nor a partner nor shareholder in any company. I am actively involved in politics. I don’t have any business, nor do I have any contract or farming,” he said while refuting RJD’s allegations.
The RJD had yesterday alleged that Sushil Modi was suspected by people of having laundered his black money through his brother’s firm and demanded a probe into the matter.
“Instead of admitting that Lalu Prasad’s family has acquired around Rs 1000 crore properties through three shell companies, Lalu Prasad’s RJD is making baseless allegations against me,” said Sushil Modi. “How can I reply to the allegations levelled against my relatives’ companies when I am neither a partner nor a director or shareholder in these companies. Only the owner of the company can reply to the allegations,” he said. Sushil Modi, accompanied by Bihar BJP vice president Devesh Kumar, alleged that his relatives are being harassed but he was not going to be either “black-mailed” or “intimidated”, rather he would intensify his campaign with double force.

The company (Ashiana Homes Pvt Ltd), about which RJD has alleged for acquiring crores of rupees through various shell companies, has not been working in Bihar for past 20 years, he said. “How can I, as DyCM, help the company flourish when it does not have any operations in Bihar and at the Centre it was UPA’s regime for 10 years between 2004-2014 in which RJD was a partner,” the senior BJP leader said. He, once again, asked Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to break his silence and take action against Lalu Prasad’s minister sons who allegedly concealed information of amassing hundreds of crores through shell companies. Replying to a query, Modi said that his sons would not be in job if he would have crores of rupees unlike Prasad’s sons who became crorepati at the age of 26.
