Most Danapur residents are unhappy with both Misa and sitting MP Ram Kripal Yadav, particularly for failing to check periodic floods
The Congress president arrived in the city from Bikram in Pataliputra Lok Sabha constituency where he addressed a rally in support of Lalu Prasad's eldest daughter Misa Bharti.
Gandhi will address a rally in Vikram at 3.30 pm for Bharti, Congress's Bihar unit in-charge Shakti Singh Gohil told reporters.
Although Prasad has dominated the political landscape of Bihar for close to three decades, capturing Pataliputra that came into being after the 2008 delimitation has remained a Sisyphean task for the family that controls the RJD.
A former confidant of Prasad, Yadav had quit the RJD and joined the BJP ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha polls in which he defeated Bharti by a margin of less than 40,000 votes.
The statement also gains significance as none of the political parties, including the RJD, have come out with their lists of candidates for the general elections yet.
The court was on August 28 informed by the ED that all the documents filed along with the charge sheet were handed over to the accused.
Special Judge Arvind Kumar fixed the matter after he was informed by the Enforcement Directorate that all the documents filed along with the charge sheet were handed over to the accused.
Special Judge Arvind Kumar granted the relief to Bharti and her husband Shailesh Kumar, who appeared before the court in pursuance to summons issued against them, on a personal bond of Rs two lakh with a surety of a like amount each and directed them not to leave the country without prior permission of the court.
The probe agency had earlier attached a Delhi farmhouse in connection with its money laundering probe against Bharti and her husband, Shailesh Kumar.
The farmhouse, located at 26, Palam farms in south Delhi's Bijwasan area has been attached provisionally under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
Bharti, RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav's daughter, had appeared before the central probe agency yesterday and was grilled for about eight hours.
Bharti, the daughter of RJD chief Lalu Prasad, deposed before the investigating officer (IO) of the case at the central probe agency's zonal office here shortly after 11:00 AM.
A similar exercise of obtaining details is to be carried out by the department against her husband Shailesh Kumar.
She had not appeared in person on June 6, following which the department had issued a show cause notice under Section 131 of the IT Act and fined her Rs 10,000.
The Income Tax Department has issued summonses to RJD chief Lalu Prasad's MP daughter Misa Bharti and her husband in connection with its probe in Rs 1,000 crore alleged benami land deals and a tax evasion case.
