Fodder Scam: Lalu Yadav's Sentencing Postponed To Tomorrow

Fodder scam Court will pronounce sentence to RJD Supremo tomorrow

After convicting Prasad and 15 others, including three IAS officers, politicians, former animal husbandry department officials and suppliers, the court had fixed Wednesday to pronounce quantum of punishment.

It also held RJD leaders Tejashwi Yadav, Raghuvansh Singh, Shivanand Tiwari and Congress leader Manish Tiwari in contempt of court for their statements to the media after Lalu Prasad's conviction.

They have been asked to appear in the court on January 23 and reply as to why contempt proceedings should not be initiated against them.

However, Raghuvansh Prasad Singh said that he was yet to get any information about the same and he would respond through legal means if he got the notice. This is the second fodder scam case in which the RJD leader has been convicted. However, no family member of his was present.

Take Lalu's missive to people, Tejashwi Prasad Yasdav asks functionaries
He was released on bail by the Supreme Court after having remained in jail for over two-and-a-half months. This year, Lalu's family in Patna had declared they won't celebrate the festival in his absence.

This case RC 64A/96 is related to fraudulent withdrawal of around Rs 90 lakh from the Deogarh treasury, in which Lalu as well as Mishra were accused. The court has convicted Lalu along with 15 others on 23rd December.

However, the jail authorities have allowed only three persons, decided by Prasad himself, to meet him in a week. "Perhaps it's time, Lalu Prasad changed his party's election symbol from lantern to LED bulb", he said.

Sources in the jail said Prasad has been keeping to himself inside the ward, watching news on Doordarshan channel and reading some vernacular newspapers. Playing the caste card is an old ploy by the Lalu family whenever things don't go its way but it is not going to work any longer.

Lalu's two sons, Tejashwi and Tej Pratap, are likely to run the party from now on.
