New Delhi, Aug 18: RJD has accused Congress of striking a deal with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on the issues of price rise and nuclear liability bill in exchange of a clean chit given to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in Sohrabuddin fake encounter case.
“Congress and BJP are together on several issues...Today"s media reports indicate that Modi has been given a clean chit by CBI in the Sohrabuddin case," Mr Prasad told media persons outside Parliament House here on Wednesday, Aug 18.
Referring to Modi as a "shark", the former railway minister said, “CBI is interrogating Shah who is only a small fish but the sharks are still out in the open."
He argued that there was no way that the then Home Minister, Amit Shah, could have taken a decision without a nod from the Chief Minister, Modi.
He then accused the BJP of selling out to Congress on the issues of price rise and the nuclear deal for a clean chit to Modi.
Mr Prasad added that the clean chit was not possible without the knowledge of the Centre and reiterated an old aspersion thrown against Congress that the party was using CBI as a tool.
RJD is now planning on holding a dharna on the floor of the Lok Sabha.
