Hours after the CBI raided his premises and filed criminal conspiracy case against him on Friday, RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav got into combative mode and challenged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJ chief Amit Shah to take action against him.

The list of accused also included Vijay Kocchar and his brother Vinay Kochhar, both of whom are directors of Sujata Hotels Private Limited and proprietors of Hotel Chalukya.

Gupta is a former Union corporate affairs minister.

Ramanand Singh put in his papers in 2008 because of another vigilance case, Ramadhar Singh quit in 2011 due to a case pending against him over the Ram Janmabhoomi issue, whereas Kushwaha resigned after he was purportedly seen taking money in a sting operation during the 2015 Bihar Assembly polls, he said.

In 2004, the Railway Board transferred complete management of catering services and railway hotels to Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) by signing a memorandum, which included the BNR hotels whose transfer took place the following year.

Terming the CBI raids as a "witch hunt", RJD chief Lalu said, "The raids were done to insult and humiliate me". Additional security personnel were deployed at offices of BJP, RJD and JD-U in the state capital while raids were on Friday.

The BJP leader further added that "apart from these 125 properties, they (Lalu and his family) have become owners of the land worth millions through seven shell companies in Patna, Kolkata, Delhi, and Aurangabad".

"I am not afraid to go to jail but I promise to destroy BJP once and for all because it has crossed now all limits of decency", Yadav, who remains out on bail in the multi-crore rupees fodder scam, said.

Sibal deflected a question on the investigating agency raiding RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav and his family, saying he did not have the details. "It is a political conspiracy", he said. "I will not buckle and fight it out to the end", said Lalu on the day.Sunday was the concluding day of Lal's three-day tour of the state to oversee preparation. We have a lot of work to do for Bihar. "Nitish Kumar was very particular about pending corruption cases against ministers - he often told us that corruption and political cases are different".

Tejasvi Yadav said that Sushil Modi has been lying since the beginning and they can not come out everyday and give clarification on his baseless allegations.

According to the CBI, Lalu Yadav, as railway minister, kept track of the tender proceedings.
