“Nothing new”, says Tejashwi Yadav on court summon in land-for-jobs case
The special judge took cognizance of a fresh chargesheet filed by the CBI and issued summons
Bihar deputy chief minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav on Friday remained unfazed over the summons issued by a Delhi court in the land-for-jobs case saying that it is nothing new.
“It is not a new thing. All this is old news. This will continue to happen in future too. This is neither the first nor the last,” he said while interacting with media persons on the sidelines of a function in the state capital Patna.
The Rouse Avenue Court of Delhi issued summons to former railway minister Lalu Prasad Yadav, Tejashwi Yadav and others accused in relation to a fresh chargesheet in the alleged land for jobs case asking them to appear on October 4.
This is the first time that Tejashwi’s name figures in the chargesheet.
In the last hearing, CBI had told the court that it has received approval from the Union home ministry to initiate the case against Lalu Prasad.
Tejashwi also took a dig at the central government over the implementation of the women’s reservation bill.
“What is the meaning of a law which will not be implemented?”, he said and demanded the quota for women should be 50% instead of 33%.
