Jharkhand High Court asks CBI to file report on role of Nitish Ghost of fodder scam now haunts Nitish Kumar Patna: Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar has come in the firing line of the opposition a day after the Jharkhand High Court asked Indiaâ€™s premier investigating agency, the Central Bureau of Investigation, to explain why the former (Kumar) should not be arraigned as accused in the million dollar scam along with his political aide Shivanand Tiwari, JD-U parliamentarian. The single bench of Justice RR Prasad has also asked the CBI to furnish its reply by November 22. This is the biggest setback for Kumar ahead of the next yearâ€™s general elections. Curiously, the first judgement in the fodder scam cases in which Kumarâ€™s political rival and Rashtriya Janata Dal president Lalu Prasad is an accused, is scheduled for September 30. â€œJharkhand High Court has asked CBI to file report concerning involvement of Nitish, Shivanand in fodder scam by 22 November. Donâ€™t expect much from CBI because Congress will blackmail Nitish Kumar and bargain for alliance with JD-U in lieu of favourable report,â€ senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader and Kumarâ€™s former deputy Sushil Kumar Modi tweeted Saturday. Accusing the CBI of using it as a tool to extract support from the regional outfits, Modi said the sword of CBI always hanged over the head of Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, Bahujan Samaj Party president Mayawati and RJD supremo Lalu Prasad. â€œCBI is a tool in hands of the Central government,â€ added Modi.
