Ramkripal hobnobbing with BJP for a year, says Lalu

Ramkripal hobnobbing with BJP for a year, says Lalu
‘It has come to light now that he (Yadav) was hobnobbing with the BJP for the past one year,’ an infuriated Prasad said.

He claimed that Yadav, a Rajya Sabha MP, had sought to use his MPLAD fund for the benefit of a college in Purnea Lok Sabha constituency held by BJP’s Uday Singh, and the college is named after Singh’s maternal grandfather.

The RJD chief produced a letter purportedly written by Yadav to the Patna district planning officer (DPO) on 16 April, 2013, about sanctioning Rs 71 lakh from his MPLAD fund for construction of practical buildings for eight subjects at Bir Narayan Chand Degree College at Dhamdaha in Purnea district.

In the letter, Yadav requested the Patna DPO to release the fund to Purnea DPO for further action.
‘This college is in named after the ‘nana’ of Uday Singh, BJP MP from Purnea Lok Sabha seat. It is still managed by his family. It shows that Ramkripal Yadav was dealing with communal forces and cheating us quietly,’ Prasad said.

Yadav, Prasad’s ‘man Friday’, had joined BJP on 12 March after being denied ticket from Patliputra from where Prasad has nominated his eldest daughter Misa Bharti. Last night, BJP announced Yadav’s name as party candidate from Patliputra.

The RJD supremo was at home taking rest on Friday as continued election campaign since 3 March has started taking a toll on his health.

The sole star campaigner of his party, he stayed away from poll tour on Friday due to exhaustion and throat congestion.
