New Delhi, April 19: RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav alleged that trial against Bharatiya Janata Party leaders in Babri Masjid demolition case is well-thought-out-politics" of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to remove Lal Krishna Advani from the presidential race.
"The CBI is under the influence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It stood in the Supreme Court and sought permission to run trial against Advani and others in the Babri Masjid demolition case," Prasad alleged.
"Since Advani's name was in circulation as a probable for the post of President, Modi through well-thought-out politics struck out his (Advani's) name," he alleged.
"It is well known that the CBI does what the government desires," the RJD chief claimed.
The Supreme Court today restored conspiracy charges against BJP leaders LK Advani, MM Joshi, Uma Bharti and others.
"The BJP makes no difference between itself and others while playing dangerous politics against anyone considered opposed to Modi," he claimed.
Lalu also demanded a probe into "why BJP veteran A B Vajpayee had become physically incapacitated?"
He also questioned BJP for appointing former UP CM Kalyan Singh as Rajasthan governor if they can't stand convicts.
Lalu was talking about a recent event in Patna to honour freedom fighters, which was unattended by Union Minister Rajnath Singh and other NDA leaders due to the presence of 'convict' Lalu Prasad.
"On one hand, they garland Gandhiji's statue, on the other, they salute his killer Nathuram Godse," he claimed.
