Lalu’s place is in jail: JD-U leader

Patna, April 26 (Inditop) A senior leader of Bihar’s ruling Janata Dal-United (JD-U) Sunday said that Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad would be in jail for his involvement in the multi-million rupee fodder scam if the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) came to power at the centre.

“”Lalu ka satta sukh ab khatam ho gaya hai, Lalu ko ab jail sukh bhogna hoga (The days of Lalu enjoying power are over, Lalu should now be ready to face the hard reality of jail),” Rajeev Ranjan alias Lalan Singh said at a election rally in Munger from where he is contesting the poll.

Known as a severe critic of Lalu Prasad, Singh said a fresh probe would be ordered into the RJD’s chief involvement in the fodder scam if the NDA comes to power. He alleged that the RJD chief had managed to suppress the cases against him in the fodder scam with the help of the Congress.

Singh, a close confidant of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, said Lalu Prasad would now be ousted from the centre in the same way he was ousted from Bihar in 2005.
