EC say's no to Sharad Yadav's claim over JD (U)


Today, Mr Kumar said the Prime Minister's pushing of simultaneous state and general elections is sagacious.

Former Janata Dal United chief Sharad Yadav on Sunday said the Central Bureau of Investigation's (CBI) probe on the Srijan Scam should be done under the supervision of a judge of the Supreme Court.

He also alleged the involvement of several Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders in the scam.

Nitish Kumar is showing no burnout when it comes to agreeing with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"But we will not sit silent and have made a decision to intensify the agitation to expose their involvement in the scam before 11 crore people of Bihar", the RJD leader said.

He said the Srijan scam would have been buried by now, had the media not highlighted it.

Yadav, who recently toured Bihar, had said he remains in the grand alliance, which includes the RJD and the Congress, and had accused Bihar Chief Minister Kumar of going against the party's resolution by allying with the BJP. He said that in the wake of corruption charges against the RJD chief and his family members Nitish playing a political move broke the grand alliance but the main motive behind the step was to join hands with BJP and hide behind them to escape from the Srijan Scam.

"Nitish Kumar's politics is full of misdeeds".

"Srijan scam in Bihar is bigger than Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh".

He said the poll panel told former Union Minister Sharad Yadav that "you have not produced any supporting documents to show that the group referred to in your application has adequate support of legislative wing and organsiational wings of the party so as to make it a splinter group of the party within the meaning of Paragraph 15 of the Elections Symbols Order, 1968".

Lalu has also targeted his erstwhile alliance partner on the Srijan scam case. The organisation allegedly used the money personally provided for the welfare of the people.

JD (U) MP and its leader in Rajya Sabha RCP Singh welcomed the Election Commission's decision.
