Fodder Scam: After sentencing today, here is how Lalu Prasad reacted
Ranchi: Soon after a special CBI court in Ranchi pronounced five year sentence and imposed Rs 60 lakh fine on RJD supremo and former Bihar CM Lalu Prasad on Monday, a week after his conviction in Doranda treasury fodder scam case, the veteran leader said that he will continue to fight to the poor, and underprivileged.
His two back to back tweets originally in Hindi read, “I fight against those who force people to fight against each other. They can’t defeat me but can implicate in false cases. I never feared them, nor will I ever succumb to them. I have always fought against them and will continue to do so. I have always stood against injustice and inequality; fought against dictatorial regime and no bars can break my motivation.”
Notably, Lalu has been officially jailed in Ranchi since Tuesday last week following his conviction in the fifth and last fodder scam case. However, he will remain active on twitter as his social media account has informed that it is being handled by his office.
“Dear friends! While in jail, My Twitter handle shall be operated by my office in consultation with family. I shall speak my mind through visitors. The fight to preserve the Constitution & protect the rights of vulnerable groups shall go on,” read a message on his account.
