"BJP says they will jail me asap, so our proposed 27th August Maha-Rally can't take place. Haha. My name is Lalu and I pity for such intimidators (sic)," Lalu said in a tweet.

On Tuesday, the IT Department sleuths carried out searches at Lalu's premises as also at the premises of party MP P.C. Gupta and several businessmen and real estate agents in and Haryana's Gurugram and Rewari.

Soon after the IT Department raids, the RJD supremo said that he was not afraid and he would not bow before any one and fight "fascist forces" till his last breath.
