Lalu was convicted and sentenced to five years’ jail in 2013 in the first fodder scam case

RJD chief Lalu Prasad was on Saturday sentenced to three-and-a-half years in jail and fined Rs 10 lakh by a special CBI court in a fodder scam case relating to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 89.27 lakh from the Deoghar Treasury 21 years ago. He was asked to pay a fine of five lakhs. "It is clear that the BJP-RSS combine is scared of Lalu even while he is in jail and is doing all that it can to silence Lalu's voice", said Tejashwi, while addressing a press conference.

Furthermore, in the wake of court's ruling and pronouncement of sentence against Lalu Prasad Yadav senior members of the RJD are expected to meet today to discuss the party's strategy and the "emerging political situation". "If he fails to deposit the penalty money, it will amount to six more months of imprisonment to him", Prabhat Kumar, counsel for Lalu Prasad told media persons. "I am sure our Chief Laluji will attend RJD's crucial meeting tomorrow" says Bihar party chief Ramchandra Purve.

The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief and 15 others were convicted on December 23 in a case related to the multi-million-rupee fodder scam by a special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court. In addition, he has also been slapped Rs 5 lakh fine by the Ranchi court. The Special CBI Court was supposed to sentence the convicts on January 3.
