December 23: Hours after Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) Chief Lalu Prasad Yadav was convicted in the fodder scam, the Congress Party on Saturday came out in his support, saying that he should not be tortured for a decades-old case.
Raghuvansh Prasad said that besides fighting it legally, the party would go to the people "fight it politically also".
Corruption allegations related to a fodder scam, which continued for several years from even prior to Lalu's term as chief minister in 1990, were levelled against him in 1998 when he stepped down as chief minister and installed his wife as his successor.
BJP spokesperson G.V.L. Narasimha Rao said: "Lalu symbolises corrupt politics of the country".
Senior RJD leader Abdul Bari Siddiqui, a confidant of Prasad, said it was not right to comment on a judgement but the people were discussing how it is freedom for some people and jail for others in the same case.
When he arrived in court on this Saturday morning, Lalu sounded confident and said he was "confident that he will get justice".
Union Health Minister and BJP leader JP Nadda was quoted saying that Lalu Yadav was not accepting the verdict and was instead resorting to blaming the BJP. "The case was on excess withdrawal from Deogarh treasury". The whole conspiracy is based on a political vendetta. While the two Jharkhand cases are pending trial, he has now been convicted in two other Jharkhand cases.
