Lalu aides in jail to 'serve' him? RJD denies charge

RJD Chief and a former chief minister of Bihar Lalu Prasad Yadav

"Lalu is in jail to save his illegally acquired wealth".

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has called for an enquiry over Special Court Judge Shivpal Singh's claim that prior to Lalu Prasad Yadav's sentencing in the fodder scam case, he "got phone calls from RJD chief's men".

On Wednesday, Lalu Prasad Yadav, who is now served at Ranchi's Birsa Munda jail, appeared before Judge Shivpal Singh in connection with another fodder scam, and reportedly made a subdued attempt at seeking bail, before complaining about jail authorities not allowing him to meet more than three visitors a day.

The judge had also said before sentencing Lalu that the former had been receiving calls seeking favours.

The RJD jumped to its leader's defence, insisting that the presence of Mahto and Madan Yadav in jail was "conicidental".

However, the judge had not clarified as to who made these calls to him.

He said that Lalu was in jail not because he took part in the freedom struggle but for amassing illegal wealth through corrupt means.

"This shows that Lalu Yadav's commitment to social justice is a sham and he cares only for himself and his family members", said Mr Kumar, a JD (U) MLC. Thereafter, they had a fight with a neighbour and were booked.

He was sentenced to three years and a half of rigorous imprisonment on January 6.

The FIR against Mahto and Madan Yadav was registered by their neighbour Sumit Yadav in Lower Bazaar police station, alleging that he was beaten up and robbed.

The RJD chief has spent nearly a fortnight in the Bisra Munda Jail in Ranchi.

The FIR lodged by Sumit alleged that Lakshman and Madan assaulted him and snatched Rs 10,000 from him.

The superintendent of Birsa Munda Central Jail, where the RJD boss is lodged since December 23 after his conviction in a fodder scam case relating to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 89.27 lakh from the Deoghar treasury 21 years ago, could not be reached immediately for comments.
