Bihar Deputy Chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi today fired another corruption salvo at Lalu Prasad and his family, alleging that a party man Mohammad Shamim was made an MLC in the past in return for making will of a prime land in Patna in the name of Tejaswi Prasad Yadav and his brother Tej Pratap Yadav. Citing a registered deed of the will, Modi told reporters that the power of attorney in the name of Prasad’s wife Rabri Devi and the deed of will of the land was simultaneously made in the name of Tejaswi Yadav and Tej Pratap Yadav on the same day of May 12, 2005.

The deed of the will said that Shamim was gifting the land to Tejaswi Yadav (who was 15 years old at that time) and his brother Tej Pratap Yadav (16 years old at that time) as the two were like his nephews, Modi said. Mohammad Shamim was nominated as an MLC from the Governor’s quota in 1998 when Rabri Devi was the chief minister in the RJD regime.

The plot in question is situated in Patna. The RJD dismissed the allegation as “far from truth.” RJD spokesman and MLA Shakti Singh Yadav said, “Sushil Modi is running a old tape recorder which is far from truth.” “Has anyone whom Sushil Modi has quoted in several cases come forward to authenticate his allegation”? the RJD spokesman said.
