Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav, summoned by the CBI to appear for questioning in connection with the alleged land-for-jobs scam on Saturday, has written to the investigative agency asking for a postponement, citing his wife’s health. Mr. Yadav’s wife is reportedly pregnant.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar dismissed the investigative agency’s case as a non-issue, claiming that it happened only because the RJD has joined hands with the JD(U). “After five years, action is suddenly taken. Why didn’t they explore the matter further?” he told reporters.

JD(U) National President Rajiv Ranjan Singh has also criticized the move, calling it an “undeclared emergency.” He said the agencies investigated twice and found no evidence, but after August 9, 2022, they started receiving evidence from some “divine force.”
“Even if no evidence is found, pet parrots will go to great lengths to show evidence. The cow’s horn is added to the buffalo and the buffalo’s horn is added to the cow. The newspaper says, ‘The robbery is done because of AK Infosystem”…which has nothing to do with the jobs-for-country thing. But hey, pet parrots can do whatever they want if their owner tells them to, which is an unannounced emergency. This kind of ruthless behavior with ” Pregnant women and small children happened for the first time in the country, the country will remember. No matter how much you oppress the country will be BJP free by 2024,” Singh tweeted in Hindi.

Tejashwi Yadav had previously been summoned for questioning on March 4, but he had failed to appear before the CBI, after which a new date was given for Saturday, officials said.
Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader was asked to appear for questioning on Saturday morning but has yet to arrive at Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) headquarters. The federal agency recently questioned RJD supremo Lalu Prasad and his wife Rabri Devi in Delhi and Patna respectively.
The case concerns people who were allegedly given jobs with the railways in exchange for land parcels donated or sold at low rates to the Yadav family and its associates, the officials said. The alleged scam took place between 2004 and 2009, when Tejashwi Yadav was 14 to 19 years old.
