Renu Devi said in the press conference, “I have already made it clear that I have no relation with Ravi anymore. I don’t talk to him. Why is my name being dragged into controversy.” The BJP leader said opposition parties in the state were making it an issue unnecessarily and she would initiate legal action against those who were dragging her name into the controversy.
Regarding the alleged land-grabbing incident, he said, “Law will take its own course.” Leader of Opposition in Bihar Assembly Tejashwi Yadav tweeted, “Deputy Chief Minister’s brothers are grabbing expensive land in broad daylight in Patna by force of arms. Huh. When the landowners protested, they threatened to take them to the Deputy Chief Minister’s residence.
He had said on Twitter on Friday, “Guardians of Jungle Raj should speak on BJP’s goondagardi.” The owners of the land, Brahmanand Singh and Shravan Kumar, claimed that the incident took place last month. Brahmanand Singh alleged on Friday, “Ravi Prasad alias Pinnu along with his associates grabbed my plot in Patel Nagar on June 21. They have also started building a wall on the plot. When we objected to his coercive act, Prasad threatened me with dire consequences and asked his colleagues to take me and Shravan to Deputy Chief Minister Renu Devi’s official residence in Patna,” he said. To tell about his brother’s antics, but he told him that he had nothing to do with him.
