Lalu is a hero and will remain a hero Rabri
Patna: "Lalu Prasad is a hero and will
remain a hero in future too," said his wife and former Bihar chief
minister Rabri Devi soon after a CBI court in Ranchi today sentenced the
RJD president to five years in jail in a multi-crore fodder scam case.
Rabri Devi was quoted by RJD secretary general and close confidante
Ramkripal Yadav as having also said that her husband has fallen victim to
The CBI court besides sentencing him to jail for five years also ordered
him to pay a penalty of Rs 25 lakh.
She remained inside her official 10 Circular Road residence, barely a
stone's throw from the chief minister's residence, watching the entire
proceedings on TV.
While elder son Tej Pratap Yadav is with his mother the younger Tejaswi
Yadav, considered heir apparent of the RJD chief, is still in Ranchi.
Ramkripal Yadav came out of the residence and told reporters that the
family was 'not demoralised' by the court order which would disqualify
Prasad as MP and debar him from contesting elections in near future.
“We were expecting this ... We are not demoralised," Yadav, RJD Rajya
Sabha member said and blamed Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and BJP for
'conspiring' against the RJD chief in the fodder scam.
"The party rank and file have taken this as a challenge which we are
committed to fight strongly," he said adding a meeting of RJD leaders has
been called on October 6 at Patna to chalk out its future strategy.
The RJD office wore a deserted look after the court verdict against party
supremo. Majority of the senior leaders are out of the state capital.
