Patna: Ruling JD(U) in Bihar today accused
RJD leader Lalu Prasad of "masterminding" the chaotic scenes
by opposition members in the two houses of the assembly as
part of a "design to mislead and fool" the people.
Condemning the chaotic scenes created by opposition
members in the state assembly and council since yesterday,
JD(U) national spokesman Shivanand Tiwari accused Prasad of
"masterminding" the events in his determined bid to " mislead
and fool" the people.
" Lalu is an epitome of corruption.. his name is
synonymous with corruption and thus everywhere he sees
corruption", Tiwari told a press conference here.
He alleged that Prasad who had remained in power in
Bihar for 15 years and at the Centre for five years had become
" desperate" and was attempting to tarnish the image of the
Nitish Kumar government.
Castigating Prasad for equating the non-reconciliation
of Abstract Contingent bills with the multi-crore rupees
fodder scam, Tiwari said they were totally different.
" Fodder scam related to fraudulent withdrawal of
crores from the state treasuries on the basis of the CAG
report which had also highlighted that fodder for cattle were
transported on trucks bearing the registration numbers of
scooters", he said.
But in the present case, the CAG had not spoken about
the case being " fraudulent in nature and has suggested that
the state government should take effective action towards
reconciliation of the AC bills.
