Fodder Scam was a corruption scandal that involved the embezzlement of about ₹9.4 billion (equivalent to ₹34 billion or US$500 million in 2016) from the government treasury of the eastern Indian state of Bihar. Among those implicated in the theft and arrested were then Chief Minister of Bihar, Lalu Prasad Yadav, as well as former Chief Minister, Jagannath Mishra. The scandal led to the end of Lalu's reign as Chief Minister. 

However, during the marriages of his kins, it was alleged that he forcefully took new vehicles from show rooms and has done innumerable mischievous  activities during His tenure as CM of Bihar as well as his tenure as Railway Minister. 

It is high time when another corruption charges of Soil comes in. Sushil Kumar Modi charged the RJD supremo Lalu Prasad’s minister son Tej with giving contract of Rs 90 lakh for land filling work in Sanjay Gandhi Biological Park located in the state capital. Yadav’s department, under whose jurisdiction the Park falls, gave contract of Rs 90 lakh to a company without following the tender process for construction of a pathway and beautification work in the park, Modi alleged. Tej Pratap, however, had refuted the charge and also threatened to move court against former deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi.

Lalu Prasad rallied behind his son as he rejected the charges and expressed readiness for any probe in this regard. “The allegation is far from truth. Get it inquired by anybody,” he told mediapersons. “If my family is deriving any money from any such thing in the Patna Botanical garden it must have been recorded somewhere by authority there…get is checked to ascertain the facts,” he said. The RJD chief said his family has been rather providing cow dung to the Patna zoo free for past one-and-a-half years for its use. 

The “soil purchase” relates to earth excavated from a two-acre plot, along the busy Bailey Road in Danapur, owned by Delight Marketing Co Pvt Limited which contracted Meridian Construction (India) Limited, owned by RJD’s Sursand MLA Syed Abu Dojama, to build a shopping mall at the site.

According to records of the Registrar of Companies, Delight Marketing Co Pvt Limited, a Delhi-based company incorporated on June 10, 1981, had Tejashwi Prasad, Tej Pratap and Chanda Yadav as its directors since 2014. In August 2016, Ragini, their sister, was also inducted on the board.

RoC records show that Delight Marketing changed names twice recently — it became Lara Projects Private Limited on November 2, 2016 and then became a limited liability partnership firm, Lara Projects LLP, on February 14, 2017. According to RoC documents, Lalu Prasad’s wife Rabri Devi and sons Tejashwi and Tej Pratap are shareholders in the partnership firm. 

It is also alleged that the land on which Mall is being constructed has been given to lalu as a favour by Mr Kotcher who was given 2 Railway Hotels by Lalu. We demand  a detailed investigation about all important decisions taken by Lalu Yadav in his capacity as Railway Minister which has resulted in loss of exchequer to Government/ treasury. We also demand a detailed inquiry in the corruption allegation of selling 2 Indian Railway Hotels to Harsh Kotcher. The investigation should jointly be done by CBI, Directorate of Revenue Intelligence and Enforcement Directorate. All illegal properties acquired by Lalu Yadav and his kins should be attached.
