RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav who has been recently convicted by the special CBI court in the fodder scam case is sentenced to Three and half Years in Jail and also imposed Five Lakh Fine. The conviction means he can not contest an election and he faces at least one more case.

In today's scam case order, former chairman of the Public Accounts Committee Jagdish Sharma was sentenced to a prison term of seven years and fined Rs 20 lakh while RJD leader R K Rana was jailed for three and six months and fined Rs 10 lakh. The former chief minister of Bihar has been lodged in Birsa Munda Central Jail in Ranchi since his conviction in the second case.

The Bihar Congress on Saturday asserted that Lalu Prasad's conviction in a fodder scam case will not have any impact on the party's ties with the RJD in the state.

"Come what may Lalu will never get scared, nor will he even kneel down".




The court had on December 23 convicted Lalu Prasad and 15 others in the case relating to the multi-million-rupee scam. The Special CBI Court was supposed to sentence the convicts on January 3. "Our charges against Lalu has been vindicated by Court", said Sushil Modi, deputy chief minister of Bihar.

Tejashwi accused NDA government of hatching a plot against Lalu for he was the only force that was uniting opposition ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha elections. "We will go to the High Court after studying the sentence and apply for a bail", said Tejashwi Yadav, RJD leader and son of Lalu Prasad.

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". "It is the end of a chapter".
