BJP following in Congress’ footsteps: Akhilesh Yadav on CBI probe
Former Uttar Pradesh chief minister and Samajwadi party president Akhilesh Yadav says that he is not worried about a CBI probe against him as his family had undergone a similar probe when the Congress-led UPA was in power. “A CBI probe will not be not be the first time for us. It happened once against all of us -- Netaji, Dimple and me. It happened in Congress’ time. We are thankful to Congress because of that experience all our paperwork were in place and maintained,” Akhilesh said while speaking in Kannauj. Speculation is rife that the CBI may examine Akhilesh Yadav as part of its probe into the sand mining scam in 2012-2013. Akhilesh was the CM and mining minister during that time.
