Jitan Ram Manjhi’s sensational claim comes a day after BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi released an audiotape where Lalu Prasad contacted BJP MLA Lalan Paswan and offered him a ministerial berth if he voted for Mahagathbandhan or remained absent from election of assembly speaker to topple the Nitish Kumar government.
Former Bihar chief minister and national president of Hindustani Awam Morcha Jitan Ram Manjhi has alleged that he was also contacted by Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav from jail in a bid to topple the Nitish Kumar government.
Manjhi has disclosed that he received a phone call on Tuesday night where the caller claimed that Lalu wanted to speak to him but he denied to speak to him.
“I received a call from Lalu Prasad at 11 pm when he tried to speak to me but I did not speak to him. The allegation made by Sushil Kumar Modi and BJP MLA Lalan Paswan against Lalu Prasad is 200% true,” said Jitan Ram Manjhi
The former Bihar chief minister further disclosed soon after election results were declared Lalu Prasad contacted is party legislators and offered them ministerial berth if they shifted loyalty to Mahagathbandhan.
“Lalu is doing politics sitting inside the jail in Ranchi. This is the wrong precedence which is being set. I demand an enquiry into this. Lalu had contacted my party legislators also and lured them with ministerial berths after elections,” said Manjhi.
