Notice to son before Lalu Prasad Yadav's sentencing

Notice to son before Lalu Prasad Yadav's sentencing

Ranchi: A special court will pronounce the quantum of sentence for locked up ex- Bihar Chief Minister and RJD Supremo Lalu Prasad and 15 others convicted on tomorrow.

Special judge Shivpal Singh adjourned sentencing for a day as lawyers abstained from work to condole the death of a member of their fraternity.

The verdict in the Chaibasa Treasury case had cost Lalu his seat in the Lok Sabha and his conviction in the Deoghar Treasury case is likely to deflate his attempts at cobbling up a united Opposition front against the BJP.

On December 23, a special CBI court in Jharkhand convicted him and others in a second fodder scam case.

The court has directed them to personally appear before the court on 23 January.

Lalu Yadav was the chief minister of Bihar during the period.

Reacting to the decision of the court, Raghuvansh Prasad Singh, who was present in the court premises, told mediapersons that he was yet to get any information about the same, adding that he would respond through legal means if he got the notice. However, the sentencing was not pronounced due to a condolence meet for advocate Vindeshwari Prasad.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) filed chargesheet against Lalu and 56 others including Jagannath Mishra. "Perhaps it's time, Lalu Prasad changed his party's election symbol from lantern to LED bulb", he said.

70 years old, Lalu Prasad Yadav is suffering from several diseases.

The RJD has convened a meeting of its senior party leaders on January 6. "There were several chief ministers who were in charge of the finance department when Laluji was not the finance minister or the chief minister so why is he being singled out?"
