Lalu unfazed by CBI probe into Railways job scam

delhi Updated: Sep 18, 2009 02:56 IST

With Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee seeking a CBI probe into a job scam that allegedly occurred during Lalu Prasad's tenure, the former Railway Minister and RJD supreme on Thursday said he was unfazed by the development.

"Much has been said on this issue. Let them do whatever they want. I don't do any wrong to anyone. I do my work and that's all...I am not afraid (of Mamata seeking CBI probe)," Prasad told reporters here, refusing to comment on the issue further.

He also denied any knowledge about Banerjee seeking to refer the allegations of irregularities in Railway Recruitment Boards (RRB) and Railway Recruitment Committees (RRC) to an outside agency for probe, saying he had regards for her.

"I don't know what is this. I do my work and that's all. I have regards for Mamata," Prasad said.

Prasad's performance as Railway Minister has come under cloud as Banerjee has apparently sought a CBI enquiry into alleged irregularities during his tenure between 2004 and 2008.

Banerjee has sought an enquiry into allegations by JD (U) MPs that people sold their land to Prasad's relatives in exchange for railway jobs and contracts.
