The former Chief minister of Bihar has been convicted in four cases of crores of rupees in the fodder scam. He was granted bail on medical grounds in May 2018. By August 30, he had been ordered to surrender by the high court.

On Wednesday, Lalu, who had been undergoing treatment in a Mumbai hospital, reached Ranchi. “Bolna nahi hai. Instruction hai. Tabiyat theek nahi hai (I have not to speak (with media). There are instructions. My health is not good),” Lalu Prasad told reporters while on his way to his wife Rabri Devi’s residence at 10, Circular road.

Since December, the RJD leader, had been lodged in Birsa Munda Central Jail and he was granted six weeks provisional bail in May. After his bail was further extended till August 14 on account of his health, the court asked him to surrender on or before August 30.

The fodder scam reeks of the humongous amounts of illegally withdrawn money from government treasuries in different districts for the animal husbandry department in undivided Bihar during the 1990s when the Rashtriya Janata Dal was in power in Bihar.
