Senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi on Saturday alleged Kanti Singh had handed over valuable land and three-storied building to RJD chief Lalu Prasad's sons to become minister at the Centre during the UPA-1 rule.
With Sushil Modi making new allegations against Lalu, Shivanand Tiwari, a former RJD and JD(U) MP but who is at the moment not in any party came in defence of the RJD chief and made a scathing attack at Sushil Modi for "repackaging" the charges that he and Rajiv Ranjan Singh Lallan, a minister in Nitish Kumar cabinet, had made in 2008.
At a press conference here Sushil Modi alleged that Kanti Singh had "gifted" her 9.39 decimal land and a three-storied building on it at Chitkohra in Patna town to Lalu's sons Tejaswi Yadav and Tej Pratap Yadav on January 6, 2005 in lieu of being made a minister in the UPA I.
Two days back, Sushil Modi had alleged Kanti Singh, her husband Keshav Prasad Singh and son Rishi Kumar had given away 95 decimal land along with three rooms built on it near Saguna More in Patna to Rabri Devi on March 13, 2006 in return for becoming minister at the Centre on recommendation of Lalu Prasad.
