Conspiracy to break RJD will not succeed, says Tejashwi Yadav

Ranchi last month

The quantum of sentence was announced by the CBI court after a delay of two days via video conferencing.

Earlier, during Saturday's court proceeding, Special CBI Court judge Shiv Pal Singh did not let go off a chance to take a jibe at the convicts in the case.

He was convicted by the court on December 23, 2017, and has been lodged in Birsa Munda prison since then.

In 1996, the Patna High Court had ordered an inquiry into the fodder scam cases and a charge sheet in the Deogarh Treasury case was filed against 38 people on October 27, 1997.

A special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court had on December 23 convicted the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief and 15 others in a case relating to the multi-million-rupee fodder scam.

"The court has awarded three-and-a-half years jail to Lalu Prasad and ₹10 lakh fine to him". However, it did cost him his Lok Sabha seat.

US Suspends 'Security Assistance' To Pakistan
But it could end up backfiring by diminishing the cooperation between the USA and Pakistan to combat terror groups in the region. But cutting funding to Pakistan will do little to advance USA interests in the region, analysts note .

There are six cases related to the fodder scam which are being investigated.

If the quantum of sentence was less than three years, thebail plea would have been moved before the trial court itself, he said.

"The judiciary performed its duty".

He also added that they will approach the High Court for bail.

On the other hand, BJP and its ally JD (U) said that no one is above the law, after the RJD said its leader has fallen prey to a "conspiracy" by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and the saffron party. NDA's partner, JDU, also said the judgment was historic for the politics of Bihar. "The only reason is that the people of Bihar are with us and this scares our opponents". "It is the end of a chapter".

PTI contributed to the story.
