This raid continued throughout the day. RJD chief Lalu Yadav tweeted about this at around 11.30 pm and made serious allegations.
He said, “We have also seen the dark phase of Emergency. We fought that battle too. Today my daughters, little granddaughters and pregnant daughter-in-law have been kept sitting for 15 hours by the BJP ED in baseless vindictive cases. Will BJP stoop to such a low level to fight us politically?”
He said that the Modi government is making a sinister attempt to kill democracy by misusing ED-CBI on opposition leaders. Where were the agencies of the Modi government when the fugitives ran away from the country with crores? When “best friend” If the property touches the sky, then why is there no investigation? People will give a befitting reply to this dictatorship!
For the last 14 hours, Modi ji called the Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar @yadavtejashwi.
His pregnant wife and sisters are being harassed. @laluprasadrjd Yes, he is old, sick, even then the Modi government did not show humanity towards him.
Now the water has gone over the head.

What did Lalu Prasad’s daughter say?
Lalu Prasad Yadav’s daughter Rohini Acharya said that you see how these people are troubling for 12 hours. If they have enmity with father, brother, then fight with them, but sisters have 5 small children who are 4-8 years old. They are closed without eating and drinking and sister-in-law is also pregnant. Due to some complications, they are in Delhi only. See how they have been troubling everyone since morning.. If anything happens to the sister-in-law or her unborn child, then who will be responsible, tell me? This Modi government and his three sons-in-law? Hey, have shame and in the name of humanity, don’t harass children and pregnant sister-in-law.
What did Abu Dojana say on the raid?
RJD leader Abu Dojana said that I am innocent. The central government is suppressing the voice of the opposition by misusing the investigative agencies. Dojana asked why action is not being taken against Adani? I do not know in which case the raid took place. The ED team did not find any evidence from my residence.
What’s the matter?
