Convicted in second fodder scam case, Lalu Prasad to be sentenced on Wednesday


New Delhi, Jan 3 (NIE): Former Bihar chief minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad will be sentenced Wednesday by a special CBI court in the Rs 950 crore fodder scam case.

The court is expected to pronounce the quantum of the sentence today, a day after it reopened after winter break.

In the first fodder scam case, Lalu was convicted and sentenced to five years in jail. He was barred from contesting in elections for 11 years, in line with the Supreme Court order disqualifying convicts jailed for more than two years from contesting for six years after completion of their sentence.

The CBI court in Ranchi is also hearing four other cases related to the fodder scam in which Lalu is among the accused. Along with Lalu, 15 others were convicted and await their sentencing today. Former Bihar chief minister, Jagannath Mishra, and five other co-accused were, however, acquitted by the court.


This led senior RJD leader and former union minister Raghuvansh Prasad Singh, who was present on the court premises, to say, “Jagannath Mishra ko bail aur Lalu ko jail… abhi yehi hai khel (bail for Mishra and jail for Lalu, this is the game now)… When both were facing exactly the same charges in the same case, how can one get bail and the other be jailed?”

    Another clean chit expected especially after 2G judgement. Nowadays it's give and take relationship between BJP and Congress. Just make hue and cry in front of public but ultimately all these politicians are one and the same. Military rule is best suited for India as enough of mockery of democracy. We need strong and clean military rule to wipe out corrupt and criminal politicians.

    Never. Even if Congress comes to power they will not touch Jay Shah as BJP is silent on Robert Vadra. So its give and take policy.
