Conspiracy to shift him from AIIMS to Ranchi: Lalu

Adjust Comment Print

In a letter fired to the AIIMS administration, Yadav, on the official RJD letterhead, wrote that the decision to discharge him was taken in haste as he was not fit enough to return to Ranchi.

The last visitor to Lalu's private room at the hospital on Monday before he was discharged was Congress president Rahul Gandhi, who exchanged some notes with Lalu, sources in Congress said.

A miffed Lalu said his shifting was part of a political conspiracy to ensure his health deteriorates further. Yadav claimed there was a "conspiracy" to weaken his health as there were "no facilities" at the Ranchi hospital.

He later also posted a clip of his speech on Twitter with the caption that read, "Rahul Gandhi tore off the ordinance brought by Manmohan Singh to save Lalu Yadav when in power but now goes to meet the convicted leader in fodder scam to take his support for 2019 elections". Dumka treasury case is related to alleged withdrawal of Rs 3.13 crore from the Dumka treasury when Prasad was the chief minister of Bihar.

"He has improved significantly and as per advice of the medical board constituted for his treatment, he is being referred back to Ranchi Medical College for management of his chronic issues", said a statement issued by AIIMS Monday. "It is a tough time, but I will face it", the ANI tweets.

In March 2018, Lalu while lodged at the Birsa Munda Jail was admitted to RIMS in Ranchi on March 17 after he complained of "uneasiness". The 2013 ordinance was meant to prevent convicted legislators from being disqualified.

Shah called Rahul Gandhi a "hypocrite".

Mr. Modi told journalists in Patna, "Tejashwi Yadav purchased the building on a 7,105 sq ft plot, priced at over Rs. 3.5 core at that time, through a shell company, Fairgrow Holdings, registered at a fake address in Kolkata".

The RJD launched a strong political counter with its leaders echoing the charge of their supremo.

While Yadav was getting discharged, some unidentified men created ruckus and misbehaved with AIIMS staff.

The RJD's main rival in Bihar BJP's ally JDU top stepped into the ring. He appealed to them not to discharge him citing heart and kidney ailments. "But the country now saw a different Rahul Gandhi", said JD (U) leader Neeraj Kumar.

Lalu will reach Ranchi by train on Tuesday.
