Former Bihar CM Rabri Devi Yadav has made a sensational claim where she has alleged that there is a threat to the life of her husband and RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav.
"They did not even let his own son meet him on Saturday. They only allow three people to meet him every week. If something hapens to Laluji then the people will take to the streets. If the state and Central government wants to kill him by poisoning, if they want to kill entire Lalu family, they can do that, this kind of dictatorship won't work," he said.
Lalu Prasad Yadav is currently behind the bars for the Fodder scam.
On April 10, the Supreme Court had dismissed Lalu Prasad Yadav's bail plea. Yadav, who has been in a hospital for about eight months now, had sought bail on medical grounds.
The decision came after the Central Bureau of Investigation had filed an affidavit before the opposing the bail plea of Yadav convicted in the fodder scam.
The CBI, which sought a nod from a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi to file its response to the bail plea of Lalu Yadav, said the RJD leader is likely to get involved in political activities and misuse the grant of bail ahead of upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
The probe agency said that in any case Lalu Yadav has been in a hospital ward for over eight months and indulging in political activities. "During the period in which the petitioner (Lalu Yadav) remained in hospital, he is not only granted a special paying ward with all facilities but he is virtually conducting his political activities from there which would be clear form the list of visitors," the CBI in its reply said.
The three cases in which Lalu Yadav has been convicted are related to the over Rs. 900-crore fodder scam, which pertains to fraudulent withdrawal of money from the treasuries in the Animal Husbandry department in the early 1990s, when Jharkhand was part of Bihar.
