Patna: The political game of ping-pong between the Rashtriya Janata Dal – U and NDA leaders continued on Wednesday as RJD surrogate Shivanand Tiwari on Wednesday said the CBI should be investigating Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Deputy CM Sushil Kumar Modi who, he said, were the kingpins in the multi-crore rupees Srijan scam.

"I urge the CBI to investigate Nitish Kumar and Sushil Kumar Modi who allowed a scam of such magnitude to take place in Bihar. We know that Modi is a shameless man but it would be nice if he also talked about Srijan scam instead of continuing to malign the RJD family every day and all the time," Tiwari, who was brought back into the RJD fold by party President Lalu Prasad Yadav following the collapse of Mahagathbandhan government in Bihar to counter the NDA allegations, said.

Accusing Modi of being obsessed with the RJD leaders, Tiwari said that the Deputy Chief Minister knew even the most minute detail about the Tejaswi Yadav's mall being built, including how many sacks of cements and how many trucks of steel rods were being used, in the construction.

"Someone who knows everything about the property of Tejaswi Yadav does not know anything about Srijan scam is preposterous," he said.

Expressing doubts about the integrity of the CBI, the nation's apex investigative agency, the RJD spokesperson said that if the CBI probed the Srijan scam with all honesty, it would find that all roads lead to Nitish Kumar and Sushil Kumar Modi.
