"I appeal to the Congress Prime Ministerial candidate Sonia Gandhi not to include Laloo Prasad Yadav and his cohorts into her cabinet as they are facing a number of criminal and corruption cases", he said.

Modi, former leader of the opposition in the state assembly, said while Laloo Yadav had been charge-sheeted in the fodder scam cases, his associates R K Rana and Jai Prakash Yadav were name accused in the fodder and BEd degree scam cases respectively.

The BJP MP said similarly Suraj Bhan Singh of LJP, M A Fatmi, Md.Taslimuddin and Anriudh Prasad Yadav alias Sadhu Yadav (all RJD), facing over a dozen criminal cases, should also not be included into the union cabinet.
