Take Lalu's missive to people, Tejashwi Prasad Yasdav asks functionaries

Lalu Prasad Yadav

The former Bihar chief minister requesting for bail before the special CBI court in Ranchi, insisted judge Shiv Pal Singh for letting him have the curd and flattened rice delicacy as part of Makar Sankranti celebrations.

The sentences will run concurrently, he said. RJD insiders said the annual celebrations have been called off owing to imprisonment of Lalu and recent death of his elder sister Gangotri Devi. The judge had also said that he received phone calls from the RJD chief's well-wishers. They had been given the tool as they were not criminals, said the court. The court pronounced its judgement after three days of arguments over the quantum of punishment.

This year, Lalu's family in Patna had declared they won't celebrate the festival in his absence.

Another fodder scam case is inching closer to the judgment day, that could cause more trouble for Lalu Prasad Yadav, who is for the eighth time in a jail.

He was released on bail by the Supreme Court after having remained in jail for over two-and-a-half months.

Kering to Spin Off Puma, Saying Goodbye to Sports Lifestyle
The number of Puma's publicly traded shares would be increased to approximately 55 percent, a statement from Kering said. The sports goods company will probably now be a candidate for inclusion in Germany's mid-cap index, Duplaix said.

Since the Dumka case is based on a similar set of evidence, he apparently expects a conviction when the judge delivers the verdict, possibly on 24 January. The maximum fine imposed was Rs 10 lakh, slapped on three convicts including Jagdish Sharma, former Public Accounts Committee chairman, while they and three others got the seven years in jail too.

Three former IAS officers - Beck Julius, Phoolchand Singh and Mahesh Prasad - were given a prison term of three and-a-half years each.

Lalu was sentenced to 3.5 years in jail on January 06.

In 1996, the Patna high court had ordered an inquiry into the fodder scam cases and a charge sheet in the Deogarh Treasury case was filed against 38 people on October 27, 1997.

On Thursday, the RJD chief appeared before the special CBI courts in Ranchi through videoconferencing from jail in connection with two cases of the Rs 1,000-0crore fodder scam.
