Reddy brothers paid 'mota' bribe to BJP: Lalu

August 28, 2012 18:42 IST
Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on Tuesday alleged that Karnataka's mining baron Reddy brothers paid huge money as bribe to Bharatiya Janata Party leaders and demanded a thorough probe into the issue by a parliamentary panel.

"Everybody knows the Reddy brothers paid huge money, 'mota (huge)' money to BJP leaders. I demand that a Parliamentary Committee be formed to probe the issue," he told the media outside the Parliament House.

His demand came amid vociferous protests by BJP in Parliament over the CAG report on coal block allocation.

Lalu alleged that the Sangh Parivar was responsible for continuous disruption of Parliament proceedings.

"The BJP and the Sangh Parivar are responsible for holding Parliament to ransom," he said, adding that he is not in favour of adjourning Parliament sine die.
