PATNA: Seeking to turn the tables on their opponents, RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav and Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav have released a photograph of Union Minister Giriraj Singh with Bihar toppers muddle kingpin Bachha Rai to show their proximity.

Lalu Prasad and Tejaswi Yadav released the photograph on the former's twitter account and sought to know the "truth" from BJP.

"What BJP got to say on it? Remember crores of rupees were recovered from this minister's house, whose money it was?" the RJD supremo said in his tweet.

His son and the Deputy Chief Minister also joined in the attack on Singh, Union Minister of State for MSME and MP from Nawada.

"The main culprit (Bachha Rai) has cordial relation with a central minister who regularly joins his college functions to distribute prizes to toppers," Tejaswi tweeted.

"All malpractices of dis college wre tking place probably by his encouragement. ModiJi's Minister wanted to open a Medical college with culprit," he alleged.

Bachha Rai, Secretary-cum Principal of the controversial Vishun Roy College in Vaishali district, is said to be the main culprit in the Bihar Intermediate merit muddle which drew a lot of flak for the state across the country.

Rai was arrested last Saturday.

Controversial Arts and Science toppers Ruby Rai and Saurabh Shrestha respectively, hailed from Bachha Rai college.

The BJP has been alleging close proximity between Bachha Rai and Lalu Prasad. Senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi had alleged that Rai worked for the victory of Tejaswi Yadav and Tej Pratap more than Lalu Prasad in the Bihar polls.

Lalu and Tejaswi's attack on BJP has triggered a political slugfest in Bihar.
