Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) President Lalu Prasad Yadav, at a press meet in Patna on Sunday, defended his daughter and MP Misa Bharti saying charges of money-laundering against her were blatant lies and an attempt to malign her reputation.

Despite cloud of concerns visibly looming over his head in the wake of a series of allegations of amassing properties against himself and most of his family members not to mention the re-opening of the fodder scam case as recently ordered by the Supreme Court, Yadav dismissed money-laundering allegations against Misa Bharti as leveled by a private television channel.

Misa Bharti bought a luxurious farmhouse near Delhi through a dummy company, the charges said.

"This is character assassination. There is no money-laundering and there is no shell company. These are baseless allegations and we will take legal action against all those who are making these false charges against me and my family members," the former Chief Minister of Bihar said.

Yadav then tried to change the topic by targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi challenging him to dissolve the Lok Sabha and hold state elections in six states all on the same day.

The idea of one-day election instead of a staggered election as is the norm in India was earlier mooted by Modi.

"If Modi has any guts then he should dissolve the Lok Sabha and hold nationwide election on one day. He should also hold all upcoming state elections including Gujarat, Karnataka, Tripura, Nagaland, Himachal Pradesh, and Meghalaya on the same day," the RJD chief said.

Accusing the Prime Minister of 'attempting to destroy the country's federal set-up, Yadav said that Modi was trying to get rid of smaller, regional parties like the RJD but he would not allow him to do so 'at any cost'.

The man who is synonymous with 'Jungle Raj' in Bihar that set the state a few decades behind other states in the country while also unleashing a reign of terror as crime became the most thriving 'industry' in the state during the infamous Lalu-Rabri regime, accused the Prime Minister of 'failing on all accounts' and added if elections were to be held today, the NDA would incur the biggest loss in its history.
