All RJD MLAs to give up security as Rabri's cover downgraded


Rabri Devi talks to the media at her residence in Patna | PTI

"It is a conspiracy of the state government to kill me and my family", she alleged. Ms. Rabri Devi was questioned by the CBI on Tuesday in the railway tender scam and at midnight the government downgraded security in her official residence. "He should make it clear who issued the earlier order to withdraw security as the Home portfolio is with him", Tejashwi told ANI. "People will obviously raise question as to how the CBI sleuths swooped down at Rabri residence when its (CBI) own legal wing, also called the Directorate of Prosecution, had opposed the lodging of an FIR against Lalu saying there was no evidence to show Lalu had influenced officials or that the land transfer (in Railway hotel case) was a quid pro quo", said RJD legislator Shakti Yadav. With Prime Minister Narendra Modi having been in Bihar on Tuesday, RJD leaders dubbed the CBI raid and the security withdrawal as "pre-planned moves born out of political vendetta". "If govt asks us to vacate our house we're ready to do it". It is a part of their conspiracy to have Lalujee and our entire family eliminated. "Only Rabri Devi was questioned today. The agency can go to the residence of any accused person without informing or through a muhurat". "That too, when the preparation is on for Tej Pratap's marriage next month", said RJD vice president and former Rajya Sabha MP Shivanand Tiwary.

In a letter she later shot off to the CM, she wrote: "If any untoward incident takes place with me or with my family members, the responsibility will exclusively lie with the state home department and the minister in charge..."

Rabri Devi wrote a letter to Nitish Kumar and said that the Home Ministry would be held responsible if any untoward incident occurred within her family.

"The guards were asked to return as RJD chief Lalu Yadav is now in jail", ADG HQ S.K. Singhal told reporters in Patna on Wednesday.
