"They call me the biggest zamindar, they say I am the biggest land owner in Bihar," Lalu Yadav told NDTV on Friday, alleging that Sushil Modi has ensured bad press for him after the Income Tax department searched multiple properties in and around Delhi as part of its investigation earlier this week.
