Let us tell you that in the charge sheet of the Land for Job case, ED has accused Rabri along with Lalu Yadav of being involved in this scam. It is reported that the money received from selling the land was given to his son Tejashwi, which was used to buy a bungalow in New Friends Colony, Delhi. It is noteworthy that on January 27, a Delhi court had summoned former Bihar Chief Minister Rabri Devi, her daughter Misa Bharti and Hema Yadav and others in a money laundering case related to the ‘land for job’ scam.
The court has summoned him after taking cognizance of the charge sheet of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) against him in the money laundering case related to ‘land in exchange for job’ in Railways. Special Judge Vishal, while directing the accused to appear in the court on February 9 i.e. today, had said that there were sufficient grounds to proceed further in the case.
What is Land for Jobs Scam?
Actually, the Land for Jobs scam took place between 2004-2009. During this period Lalu Yadav was the Railway Minister. When Lalu was a minister, recruitments were done in Group D in Railways. Many people were given jobs within 3 days of applying. Allegations were made that land was taken as bribe from the candidates in exchange for jobs. When investigation was done in this matter, it was found that Lalu family was also accused of giving jobs in exchange of land. ED said in the charge sheet that Lalu family has got land at 7 places. Investigation revealed that jobs were given in a hurry without issuing any advertisement. Appointments were made in Mumbai, Jabalpur, Kolkata and Jaipur zones. More than 1 lakh square feet of land was purchased for just Rs 26 lakh, whereas the price of the land at that time was around Rs 4.39 crore. Lalu family is accused of money laundering worth Rs 600 crore.
