Patna: Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi, reacting to his predecessor Tejaswi Yadav's reluctance to vacate his government-provided bungalow to make room for his successor, said that it was understandable that the man who became the owner of 30 high-priced properties at the age of 27 would be in no mood to give up his luxurious bungalow that he treats as one of many his own properties.

"Who could blame a man who became owner of 30 properties valued at roughly Rs. 1000 crore at the tender age of 27 when he insists on keeping the bungalow that was meant to be occupied by the sitting Deputy Chief Minister of the state? It is this undying love of his for land and properties that landed him in trouble with the Income Tax department and the CBI in the first place and yet he refuses to learn from these experiences," the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader said.

Continuing to take shot at his predecessor who on Saturday informed the CBI that he won't be able to abide by the summon to appear before it on September 11 due to 'prior political engagements', Modi said that exactly how many houses Tejaswi Yadav needed to live in.

"His mother sold eight flats in Patna to the leaders of the sand mafia on the same day and yet she remains the owner of ten other flats. Former Bihar Minister Kanti Singh also gifted her land to Tejaswi Yadav. He also very skillfully took the ownership of a land and building on it previously owned by RJD leader Prabhunath Singh by first getting it transferred in the name of A K Infosystem and later becoming the owner of this so-called business. His father then became an owner of a plot in the MLA Cooperative and then acquired yet another plot by putting pressure on Badshah Prasad Azad. Meanwhile, senior RJD leader Abdul Bari Siddiqui also very generously gifted another plot to Rabri Devi. With all these properties and crores of rupees earned from the rent money, Tejaswi Yadav still doesn't want to let go of the bungalow that is a government property and is meant to be occupied by the Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar. The house he is being allotted as the leader of the opposition in the state Assembly is also quite spacious so I don't see any reason why he is showing reluctance in vacating the current bungalow that he is continues to occupy illegally," the Deputy Chief Minister said.
