RJD MLA bought 5 flats from Rabri Devi, alleges Sushil Modi

first_imgPatna, Aug 18 (PTI) In a fresh attack on Lalu Prasads family, Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi today alleged that RJD MLA Arun Yadav had bought five flats for Rs 2.56 crore from Rabri Devi, the party supremos wife, at Marchhia Devi complex here in June this year.”On June 13, 2017, two sand mafias – namely, Subhash Yadav and Arun Yadav — purchased eight flats worth Rs 3.28 crore from Rabri Devi,” Sushil Modi told reporters.Arun Yadav, the RJD MLA from Sandesh in Bhojpur district, had purchased the five flats through his shell company — Kiran Durga Contractors Pvt Ltd — which claims to be engaged in the construction field, Sushil Modi alleged and wondered why a company would buy five flats.Reacting to the allegations, Mrityunjay Tiwari, State RJD spokesperson said, “Nobody takes note of Sushil Modis allegations. He is targeting Lalu Prasads family to divert the attention of the people from the fact that his name has cropped up in a scam involving an NGO in Bhagalpur.”Modi alleged that the RJD MLAs shell company was set up to convert black money into white which was why it purchased the five flats.”Lalu Prasad has learnt or devised ways and means to acquire properties that would put even Robert Vadra to shame,” he said.Asked what was wrong in Rabri Devi selling her properties (flats), he conceded that there was none. “But it generates suspicion when five flats are purchased by a single company owned by an RJD MLA who is a sand mafia also.”advertisementModi produced copies of what he claimed were the sale deeds of the five flats.Modi said Rabri Devi, who owns 18 flats in the complex, had sold eight of them while he (Sushil Modi) was making one expose after another on the familys benami properties.”I am making charges along with the documents and I dare him (Lalu) to reply to my allegations. Or he should disown that Subhash and Arun did not buy the flats,” he said.Sushil Modi also sought to establish a relation between Subhash Yadav and Arun Yadav. He showed a purported bank agreement in which Subhash Yadav was made a guarantor for a loan taken by Arun Yadav to purchase a sports car worth Rs 24.31 lakh.”There is no strength in Sushil Modis allegations at all as there is nothing wrong in selling and buying properties. With regard to the question as to from where Arun Yadav got the money it is upto him to say,” RJDs Bihar unit spokesman Shakti Singh Yadav said.He alleged that Sushil Modi is trying to create a kind of fear among those in the sand business by painting everyone as mafia. “Rather (Sushil) Modi should tell people as to how much money he had received in the allotment of lease for sand mining when he was the mines minister.

India vs Australia: What is a drop-in pitch and how is it different from a regular one?

first_imgIndian cricket team just won a thriller test match against Australia in the first Test of the Border-Gavaskar trophy 2018-2019 played at Adelaide Oval. The game was closely contested with only 31 runs deciding the fate of the match. But in all of that excitement, did you come to know about the use of drop-in pitch at the stadium?What is a drop-in pitch?The drop-in pitch is exactly what it sounds like. It is a pitch created away from the ground or venue hosting the match, which is then ‘dropped’ into the site before the game.The first time a drop-in pitch was used in the history of cricket was at the WACA stadium in Perth.Right now, ‘Men in Blue’ are playing second match of the series against the host Kangaroos at the new Optus stadium of Perth. And the stadium also flaunts a drop-in pitch to which the Cricket Australia referred as ‘green monster’.Just 24 hours out from the second #AUSvIND Test, the Perth curator has unveiled a green monster. More from @samuelfez: (@cricketcomau) December 13, 2018What is special about a drop-in pitch? That’s how a drop-in pitch fits into the groundOne of the many advantages of drop-in pitches is the multi-purpose use of a stadium in which it is being utilised; the cricket venue can be used for other sporting events and musical concerts. The drop-in pitch allows Australia to host football, rugby and cricket matches at the same ground.advertisementA drop-in pitch also allows a pitch curator to modify it the way they want which otherwise could not have been possible with a regular one. They can easily manufacture a bowler-friendly drop-in pitch with a combination of soil, clay and grass.Interested in General Knowledge and Current Affairs?
