Patna, November 25, 2020 : Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader from Bihar Sushil Kumar Modi recently took to Twitter and levelled a serious allegation against Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Lalu Yadav saying that he is making phone calls from jail to buy BJP MLA’s and is conspiring to topple the newly-elected government in Bihar.

Sushil Modi shared a mobile number and alleged that Yadav was making phone calls through that number and was trying to lure NDA MLA’s by promising them ministerial positions.

Modi tweeted, “Lalu Yadav making telephone call (8051216302) from Ranchi to NDA MLAs & promising ministerial berths. When I telephoned, Lalu directly picked up. I said don’t do these dirty tricks from jail, you will not succeed.”

RJD supremo Lalu Yadav is serving his term in jail because he was sentenced by a special CBI Court after being accused in a number of fodder scams. Yadav is currently in RIMS hospital in Ranchi due to certain health complications.
