Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav’s troubles increased
CBI reopens IRCTC scam case
Demand for cancellation of bail granted to Tejashwi Yadav
New Delhi. Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav’s troubles have increased. In the IRCTC scam case, the CBI filed an application against him in the Rouse Avenue Court. The CBI has demanded cancellation of the bail granted to him in this case. On this, Rouse Avenue Court also issued notice to Tejashwi Yadav. In the year 2018, the investigating agency had filed a chargesheet against 14 people including RJD supremo Lalu Prasad, former CM Rabri Devi, Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav in the IRCTC tender scam case. At that time it was believed that due to this matter, there could be an eclipse in the early stages of Tejashwi’s political career.
At the time when the CBI had filed this chargesheet, Lalu was already serving his sentence in the fodder scam case and was undergoing treatment at AIIMS. Let us tell you, in the year 2004, the then Railway Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav transferred two railway hotels to IRCTC. Tenders were also issued to take care of them. During this it came to know that there have been irregularities in awarding the tender. It was found in the investigation that Lalu, while being the Railway Minister, had allotted two hotels located in Puri and Ranchi of the Railways to Sujata Hotel, the company of the Kochhar brothers. In its distribution, the rules were completely kept in abeyance. In lieu of this allotment, land worth crores was transferred to Lalu Prasad Yadav by a shell company Delight Marketing in Patna. This company is now known as Lara Private Company.
this thing came in front
At that time, the responsibility of this case came in the hands of CBI Special Director Rakesh Asthana. According to the CBI, it was revealed in the preliminary investigation that there were irregularities in the hotel allocation. The land was taken instead of giving it on lease to the hotel. 32 crore land was taken out of 65 lakhs. On the other hand, it was also being said that if the charge against Tejashwi had been proved, he would have been sentenced to 7 years. In such a situation, Tejashwi could not contest a single election. According to legal experts, if any person is sentenced to more than 6 months, then there is a provision under the Representation of People Act that that person cannot contest elections.
